Curry is a mixture of several spices, mainly turmeric. Curry powder has many antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Curcumin is one of the main substances that gives turmeric its health benefits. Curcumin supports colon health,brain function, and helps the cardiovascular system.

This recipe combines sweet potato and curry in a delicious soup.

Ingredients

  • 4 1/2 Cups vegetable broth
  • 1 Cup dried onion
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 5 Cups chopped sweet potato
  • 1 Cup water
  • 1 Cup + 6 Tablespoons non dairy or 0-1% dairy fat yogurt

Directions
Use vegetable peeler or knife to remove skin from sweet potatoes. Chop sweet potatoes into small pieces. Put potatoes in pot with vegetable broth, dried onion, and curry powder. Cook over medium-high heat until potatoes are tender. Once potatoes are tender, puree sweet potato mixture with the water and yogurt . I puree it in my food processor or blender (depending upon my mood) in small portions, then transfer the portions back to my large pot for further simmering. You could also blend it in the pot with a hand blender, but the consistency wouldn’t be as smooth. This could be enjoyed as a cold soup as well. It is such an easy and affordable recipe! Top with more yogurt and or parsley (totally optional).
