Sister Soup!

Sooooo.. This post is long overdue.. This soup is what I like to call sister soup. :) Most of the girls in my family got together at my oldest sisters house for a weekend around the holidays and did wreath making.. (just to show you how overdue this recipe is..) When we get together between all of us there is a lot of food intolerances.. (most of them mine.. ha!) so we must be quite creative when whipping together meals that all of us can consume.. One of the nights that I was up there it was quite cold and we were all feeling like some soup. My oldest sister Jenny is AMAZING at making soups.. she really has it down pat.. me.. not so much.. making soups is quite a challenge for me! but slowly I am learning. :) Anyway.. So me, my oldest sister Jenny and my twin sister Amber all got our heads together and started chopping and dicing and slicing and came up with quite a delicious soup.. Id say it has kind of a... Thai influence? Its quite good. :)Without further ado.. here is the recipe. :)

Sister Soup. :)
(I copy and pasted my sisters e-mail below.. she recorded the recipe for all us girls.. I think its time you all sample it too.. I love it!!)
sweet potato soup with coconut mlik and cilantro


- small chopped onion
- 5 cloves garlic chopped
- small piece of FRESH ginger approx. 3" chopped
- 32oz chicken broth (I would substitute veggie broth next time I make it for myself)
- 1.5  13.5oz canned coconut milk full fat (Native Forest brand)
- 4 sweet potatoes (technically yams) peeled and cubed
- cardamon approx 1/2 tsp
- corriander approx 1/4 tsp
- cloves approx 1/4 tsp
- cumin approx 1/4 tsp
- turmeric approx 1/4 tsp
- salt to taste
- FRESH cilantro approx 1/4 cup chopped fresh
- coconut oil 3-4 tbsp


in large pan (we used a dutch oven) saute onion in coconut oil until soft and translucent. add garlic and ginger saute until fragrant. add chicken broth and sweet potato (yams). cover. cook until soft. once sweet potatoes are soft remove from heat and let cool a few minutes. add coconut milk, spices, and salt to taste. sprinkle with cilantro, and enjoy!
