Directions

  1. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and lime zest. Set aside in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to blend.
  2. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add sweet potatoes, and chicken stock. Season with cumin, chili flakes and ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
  3. Puree the soup using an immersion blender or regular blender. If using a counter top blender, puree in small batches, filling the blender just a bit past half way to avoid spillage. Whisk peanut butter into the soup, and heat through. Stir in lime juice, and salt.
  4. Ladle into warm bowls, and top with a dollop of the reserved sour cream, a few pieces of diced tomato, and a sprinkle of cilantro.

All I have to say is WOW!One quick tip: I microwaved my sweet potato until tender and then mashed with a fork to speed up the process. It was a quicker cook time, made the sweet potato easier to puree. SO FAB!!!

This is an interesting and flavorful soup. To make it more "Thai" I added a can of lite coconut milk. Added creaminess and wonderful flavor. Next time I make it I might omit the red pepper flakes and add red curry paste instead for more of a kick. Definately a keeper!

I've made this soup two times. The first time my husband referred to it as the 'peanut butter soup' and we ended up throwing out the leftovers. The second time I made a few modifications: halved the peanut butter, subbed lemon for lime, omitted cilantro and tomato (as I was out). It turned out fantastic! This made the perfect lunch on a chilly winter day.
