    Lindiwe's Note:

    This recipe is from the Rebar cookbook. Rebar is a fabulous restaurant in Victoria, BC...highly recommended! This is a delicious soup! It's just spicy enough, and very exotic-tasting. I really love the combined taste of ginger and cilantro. I pair a big bowl of soup with a whole wheat pita and a green salad. It can take some time to chop all of the veggies, but it's fun to make on a cold weekend day and the colours and smells are wonderful. I'm a slow cook, so the prep time might be shorter for you.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat stock. I actually only use about 4 cups of stock, because I like my soup thick.
    2. 2
      In a big soup pot, heat oil. Saute onions with a pinch of salt for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, ginger and spices and sauté until everything's soft.
    3. 3
      Stir in red peppers and yams, cooking them until they start to stick to the bottom of the pot.
    4. 4
      Add stock, bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer until yams are tender.
    5. 5
      Add pineapple with juice, tomatoes and peanut butter and simmer 30 minutes. Add stock if needed.
    6. 6
      Purée the soup until smooth. I just use my blender.
    7. 7
      Season to taste with more salt, pineapple juice and/or hot sauce. Just before serving, add chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice.

      This soup is TERRIFIC!!! I think it may be the single best-tasting thing ever to come out of my kitchen. Wow. I also reduced the amount of stock, to 6 cups, and was pleased with the consistency. Enjoy!
