Sooooo I had a few sweet potatoes and I had some ginger and later I had some soup!!! I mean I never thought to put the two together and I am glad I did. It turned out very tasty. Why soup? Something different, something for the soul, and something I was able to eat pre and post my cardio workout. It was another quick and easy meal. The key to any good soup at home is a good blender! I really love my Living Well blender ! I can make smoothies, soups, sauces, and more. I plan on making all my newborn’s baby food! I use to have the baby bullet for my first daughter but I used it so much it stopped working ! Oops!
Anywhoo, here’s what I did:
3 cups water
3-4 large sweet potatoes washed, peeled, and cut into thick slices
1 ginger root (1/4 cup needed)
2 tbs sugar
Dash of salt
1. Boil 3 cups of water. Add sweet potatoes and let boil until soft.
2. Using a peeler you can shred your ginger root. Shred enough for at least 1/4 cup worth.
3. Using a masher, mash sweet potatoes in pot. Add ginger. Stir. Add sugar and salt. Stir.
4. Transfer mixture to blender. Blend until smooth. The sweet potato should be smooth and somewhat thickened.
