Leave a comment

The soup has roots in African food tradition. Peanut butter is added, thickening the soup and giving it a delicious flavor. The combination of sweet potatoes and peanut butter may sound strange, but result is mouthwateringly addictive. This soup is the perfect for any night of the week.


  • 3 large sweet potatoes (I used two orange and one white)
  • 2 cups not chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp palm oilsweetpotatosoup
  • 1.5 tsp berbere
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 onion
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 tsp celtic salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • green onion for garnish

Directions: Wrap sweet potatoes in foil and bake in a 400 degree oven until tender, about 50 minutes. In the meantime Saute onion in 1 tbsp olive oil until translucent, add garlic and softened sweet potatoes. Stir in thyme, salt, peanut butter, and broth. Add in batches to a blender and puree until smooth, return to pot and stir in berbere and chopped peanuts. Simmer until warmed through and season to taste. Serve with a drizzle of palm oil and a little pinch of celtic salt.
