Anyway to make up for it, I have a pretty awesome recipe to share with you. I’ve been sick for the last two weeks (probably because I’ve been eating like crap but that’s for another post…) so I’ve been eating a ton of soup. But as we learned from my previous post, always check the ingredients. So I did…and found this:
Progresso: Tomato Basil. Also contains nothing natural. Does contain “Corn syrup solids,” soybean oil and soy lecithin. Eek.
These were both cans of soup I had in my pantry. And the sad part is….I ate them. I was stuck at home, dying of the plague and all I had to do was open the darn can and microwave. I’m sure all of you have been there at least a few times in your life.
However, never again! Because now you will be able to make your own soup with 100% natural ingredients. This one not only tastes good, but is incredibly easy to make.
Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato Soup
Recipe adapted from Paleo Pot
3 sweet potatoes, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
2 red peppers, roasted in the oven like I showed here (minus the onions) or you can just buy a can, diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
1 can of coconut milk
1 cup of chicken stock (I recommended the brand I use in this post)
Optional: spices such as cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, paprika, cayenne etc
Bam! Red pepper and sweet potato goodness. Now as for the optional spices, you really can’t go wrong. I left my unspiced until it was finished, then experimented with adding some pumpkin pie spice. I didn’t measure. Could also be good with just regular cinnamon. Or if you wanted to give it more of a kick, go with something hot. So many choices. The point is you can easily have 100% natural soup in less than 3 hours for days when you feel like poo.
Update: I just had an idea on what to add next time. Bacon!
