Create A Sweet Potato Peanut Bisque Your Parents Would Be Proud Of
3 large sweet potatoes, chopped
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups tomato juice
2 green chiles, diced or to taste
2 teaspoon(s) minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon(s) ground allspice
2 cups vegetable broth
½ cup smooth peanut butter
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Juice of 1 lime
Chopped fresh cilantro leaves and lime wedges for garnish, optional
Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, add sweet potato and onion and cook stirring, until it just begins to brown, 10-15 minutes.
Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more.
Stir in juice, green chiles, ginger, and allspice.
Adjust the heat so the mixture boils gently; cook for 10 minutes.
Place the half soup in a food processor along with the broth and peanut butter and puree until blended.
Puree until completely smooth.
Puree the other half of the soup too.
Thin the bisque with water, if desired. Season with pepper.
Add lime juice and heat until hot.
Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.
