With a touch of spiciness and a touch of sweetness this native African dish is delicious. Try a bowl with a green salad for lunch or a cup as a starter.
2 large sweet potatoes
3 pounds cooked butternut squash
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp crushed red pepper
5 cups lower sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
salt and pepper to taste
chopped cilantro
1 Peel, chunk, and boil the butternut squash and sweet potatoes until chunks are easily pierced with a knife (maybe 20 minutes), then drain. Over medium heat, sauté potatoes, squash, onion and spices until onion is tender.
2 In a large soup or sauce pan, combine potato and squash mixture with broth, stirring to incorporate all ingredients. Bring to a simmer.
3 Mix peanut butter with a cup of the hot soup in a small bowl; then return mixture to the soup pot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
