Another Storm day to cook up some comfort food … With a ton of root veggies to use up! Man I can’t wait for crisp fresh local greens and colourful locally sourced salads with fresh local strawberries…. Sigh… Ok so I was getting tired of roasting and steaming and cooking root veggies so I had to find another route for ingesting them lol. Behold the sweet potato peanut yumminess!
1 TBSP olive oil
1 large onion chopped
– heat up the oil in a large sauce pan and cook up the onions till they start browning then add…
2 cloves of garlic – or more if your like me 🙂 minced or crushed in a garlic press and seriously get some good stuff – no thE stuff preserved in jars or tubes… Buy some locally grown stuff!!! You’ll never go back to crappy stuff again.
2 tsp minced ginger – ok so I definitely used more than 2 tsp. But it’s all a matter of your taste buds – I love fresh ginger… Throw that shit it everything!
2 tsp. Coriander
1/4 tsp cinnimon
Pinch of ground cloves
Mix that up and then add
3-4 chopped up tomatoes
1 1/2 pounds of peeled and cubed sweet potatoes
2 peeled and chopped carrots ( I used purple carrots cause it’s what I had in the fridge but you can use any kind of carrot
4 – 5 cups of vegetable broth
Bring to a boil and then lower the temp to a low to medium heat. Let the mixture simmer for 30 min. Season with salt to taste.
2 Tbsp of natural peanutbutter
A dash of cayenne to desired taste
( come on you should always taste your food. )
Serve with chopped fresh cilantro, chopped tomatoes and crushed peanuts
My batch made 11 cups 😜
