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.

Balancing Excess Kapha
Balancing Excess Kapha

by Kottakkal Support January 16, 2019

Ahh, Kapha. A Dosha that we all have, made up of earth and water. It gives us many of our best human qualities, such as our grounding, stability and warm emotions. When in excess however, it can have negative consequences on our overall health. 

To reduce or pacify kapha, Ayurveda has given us dietary, lifestyle and herbal treatment strategies. To reduce Kapha, emphasize stimulation, exercise, lightening, warming and drying in your diet and lifestyle.

January Ayurvedic Recipe: Lentil Soup with Vegetables

by Kottakkal Support January 01, 2019

A delicious soup like this is good for anytime of the year. It's high in fiber and vegan (unless you use ghee in place of the coconut oil!) which is also a great switch. Enjoy this warm, balancing dish with friends and family! It's the perfect one to share, so we made this recipe to serve 6 in time for the holidays.
