DIRECTIONS

  • Heat stock. I actually only use about 4 cups of stock, because I like my soup thick.
  • 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.
  • Stir in red peppers and yams, cooking them until they start to stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add stock, bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer. Cover and simmer until yams are tender.
  • Add pineapple with juice, tomatoes and peanut butter and simmer 30 minutes. Add stock if needed.
  • Purée the soup until smooth. I just use my blender.
  • Season to taste with more salt, pineapple juice and/or hot sauce. Just before serving, add chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice.
