Thai Coconut Sweet Potato Soup

Thai Coconut Sweet Potato Soup


This month we decided to make a hearty sweet potato soup... and it was DELICIOUS!! It has an amazing Thai zing to switch it up from your usual soup routine.

We added steel cut oats to make it even hearty-er but you could leave them out or substitute it with rolled oats. The main difference between steel-cut oats and rolled oats is the processing. Steel-cut oats are oat groats that have been cut into two or three pieces, making it relatively unprocessed. Rolled oats are made by steaming and rolling oat groats for faster cooking... nutritionally they aren't so different!



One of our team members and several wellness members attended the PBNSG event where Dr. Fuhrman presented. One thing he teaches is the anti-cancer foods as he cleverly calls the G.B.O.M.B.S. The G.B.O.M.B.S are Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries, and Seeds! Consuming these foods daily can drastically improve the immune system and they have lots of anti-cancer effects... so eat your greens!!



Check out the recipe below for the sweet potato soup: 



    • 1 Red Onion
    • 2 large cloves of Garlic
    • Splash of Vegetable Broth
    • 3 Sweet Potatoes

Question about using coconut milk. I thought all things coconut were bad, a concern about the fats being bad for arteries. Please clarify as the recipe looks good.
Thanks, Bev

That surely would be very humiliating if sweet Potato went extinct. It would make a very bad impression of Asians in the world. just because you like the soup made by it, does not mean that you wipe their kind off. You should try to make other soups that are of edubirdie reviews services instead of Sweet Potato soup.
