Keep Calm and Curry On!
You know, curry can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. The most familiar are probably the curries that originated in the Indian subcontinent. This region is where the word “curry” (actually kari, a Tamil word) originated.
However, the word “curry” is now used (at least in English) to describe all kinds of spicy dishes from across the globe. These days, you can walk down the restaurant strip in almost any city and find a curry house. What a wonderful world ?!
Well, whatever you mean when you say curry … all we hear is “delicious”!
Our inspiration for this sweet potato curry soup is the ancient spice blend of coriander, turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, and chili. You can generally find this mix at the grocery store as “curry powder”, but you can always make your own if you have the time ?. We then rounded out the soup’s curry flavors with some coconut milk. All of this spiciness and creaminess then gets some starchy body from the sweet potato.
Speaking of sweet potatoes – it’s very hard to go wrong with these sort-of-spuds. They are delicious, but also loaded with vitamin A. This sweet potato curry also delivers plenty of fiber and beta-carotene (an antioxidant that your body also uses to make vitamin A). Finally, sweet potatoes have a low glycemic index (GI). This means that despite having more sugar than regular potatoes, they release this energy more slowly – fueling your body for longer.
So if it’s cold outside, or you just want to enjoy some soup, give this sweet potato curry recipe a try!
