Recipe by: Frankie


1 TBSP peanut oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 TBSP freshly minced ginger
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
salt & pepper
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
4 cups vegetable broth
2 TBSP creamy natural peanut butter
1 TBSP freshly squeezed lime juice
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped peanuts


1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrot and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions start to brown, about 6 minutes.

2. Add the garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper and stir to combine. Add the sweet potatoes and stir to coat. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

3. Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender until smooth. Return the pureed soup to the dutch oven over medium-low heat. Stir in the peanut butter and lime juice until fully incorporated and soup is heated through. Season with salt & pepper to taste.

4. Ladle into bowls and top with sliced green onion and chopped peanuts.
