There’s soup, and then there is soup.

This is definitely the latter.

Soup that is spicy, thick, creamy, aromatic, comforting, filling, and just all the right things to nourish your heart and soul.

That’s what this soup is

That’s what it does

Spicy Sweet Potato Tomato Soup

1 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. ground ginger (powder)
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. black pepper

1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
2 14 oz. cans Muir Glen Organic Crushed Fire Roasted Tomatoes 
8 oz. vegetable broth
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
2 Tbs. fresh basil, thinly sliced

In a large stockpot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, salt, ginger, nutmeg, pepper, and sweet potato. Stir to coat in oil, reduce to medium low, cover, and allow to cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and vegetable broth and allow to simmer until potatoes are soft, 15 minutes.
Using an immersion blender (or transferring to a high speed blender), purée until smooth.
Stir in coconut milk and fresh basil.

Serve with a hearty slab of buttered sourdough bread.
