    Sweet Potato and Peanut Soup

    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped -- (2 to 4)
    • 1 medium onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
    • 2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut in 1" dice
    • Salt to taste
    • 1/2 cup peanut butter
    • 3 c. water or vegetable stock
    • 1 c, orange juice
    • minced habaneros to taste
    • 1 tsp. oil
    • 1 tsp. curry powder (optional but good)
    • 1 c. sour cream or yogurt
    • GARNISHES, your choice:
    • peanuts or walnuts, toasted, coarsely chopped
    • diced tomato
    • chopped banana, orange or tart apple
    • toasted coconut
    • salsa
    • diced red chiles

    Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Brown garlic on all sides, then add onions and chiles and cook, stirring often, till onion is golden brown.

    Add sweet potatoes and saute until lightly browned (about 5 minutes). Add liquid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until 'taters are soft (about 20 minutes).

    Purée in a blender or food processor, then return to saucepan. Stir in peanut butter and then sour cream or yogurt (last) and reheat through over low heat

    Adjust seasoning, adding salt to taste. Pour in bowls and garnish; I especially like chunks of orange and chopped red chiles
