Creamy Sweet Potato and Almond Butter Soup

Creamy Sweet Potato and Almond Butter Soup

by Kate Lewin September 27, 2016

Thank you Naomi Boas of Heal Ayurveda LA for this delicious, Vata-calming recipe! 

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 pounds of sweet potatoes, peeled, quartered length-wise and sliced thin (Beauregard Sweet Potatoes, if possible. Make sure they are orange-fleshed potatoes; white or purple fleshed sweet potatoes will result in an odd looking unappetizing color)
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped fine
  • 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 3 tablespoons of creamy almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons of ghee
  • 2 teaspoons of packed light brown sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh cilantro, minced
  • ½ teaspoon of ground coriander
  • Himalayan salt
  • Fresh ground pepper

Preparation:

1) Melt ghee in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, sugar and 1 teaspoon of salt and cook, stirring frequently, until onion is soft and translucent (about 5-7 minutes.

2) Stir in garlic and coriander and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

3) Add chicken broth, water, sweet potatoes and almond butter. Bring to boil over high heat. Once boiling, turn heat to low and cook, partially covered, until sweet potatoes are soft and easily pierced with a knife (about 25-30 minutes).

4) Working in batches, puree soup in a blender (or a Nutribullet) until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes, then transfer the blended soup to a clean saucepan. Warm, season with salt and fresh ground pepper (to taste), garnish with cilantro and serve.

Ayurvedic Self-Massage: A Little Bit of Loving

by Kottakkal Support July 17, 2017

Ayurvedic self massage (abhyanga) with warmed, herbal oil is an excellent way to get in touch with your body and mind. It gives you time to check in with yourself and find areas that need special attention. Besides leaving you feeling warm, cared for and refreshed, abhyanga soothes your nervous and endocrine systems, rejuvenates your skin, tones muscles, eliminates impurities, promotes youthfulness, reduces the effects of stress, is relaxing and just feels terrific. Overall it's wonderful!

Ayurvedic Cashew Cream
Ayurvedic Cashew Cream "Cheese"

by Kottakkal Support July 12, 2017

Consider the consistency of melted cheese and imagine your gut trying to break it down - not an easy task. Several modern studies point to the many health risks of regular cheese consumption, yet it is as ubiquitous in our cooking as salt and pepper. So, imagine my happiness when I discovered this recipe! It is so simple that even I was surprised at its tastiness; especially when I added my own flavors to the mix. Hopefully this will offer a tasty alternative to cheese for you as well!
