SWEET potatoes are known to help stabilize blood sugar levels and make you feel full.

Some of the super nutrients these sweet potatoes contain include antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

The bright orange flesh is a sign that sweet potatoes contain a massive amount of vitamin A, in the form of beta carotene.

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups sweet potatoes, cubed

1 medium sweet onion, chopped

2 celery stalks, chopped

¼ inch of fresh ginger, minced

1/2 tsp curry powder

1/2 tsp coriander

1/4 tsp cardamom

1/4 tsp turmeric

Sea salt

Pinch of cayenne

5 cups vegetable stock

1 cup plain almond, flax, or coconut milk

1 Tbsp coconut oil or butter

1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds

DIRECTIONS:

* Heat coconut oil or butter in a large pot and sauté onions and celery until tender and translucent. Add the minced ginger and sauté briefly. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

* Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender.

* After the soup has cooled sufficiently, place in a blender and puree in batches till smooth. If too thick add more stock or water. Sprinkle with roasted pumpkin seeds. (Cat Ebeling)
