This soup is fantastic! I used fresh ginger instead of dried, and included a couple of cloves of garlic. I also added some red lentils to the sweet potato and carrots while it was cooking, and blended in some soft tofu to give it some protein at the end. It's a hearty, healthy, feel-good meal and is forever included in my rotation. Thanks!


pretty good. i also would decrease the cardamom a bit, otherwise great flavor and spice. i did add a bit more broth at the end, as it was pretty thick. Served it with grilled cheese the first night, and over brown rice for lunch the next day. flavors really developed overnight, and it made great leftovers.


Yummy! This soup is so yummy and comforting! I doubled the recipe, and put a little too much cayenne, so I added some cream cheese to cool it off. Perfect! Thank you! The cardamom and the sweet potato go so well together.
