Carrot Sweet Potato Soup

Ingredients

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 cup yellow onion, diced
1 tsp. plus 1 pinch sea salt
2 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
2 cups sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 cups carrots, peeled and cut into ¼-inch rounds
1 can light coconut milk, divided
2 ½ Tbs. lemon juice

Directions

In large saucepan on medium, heat up oil.  Add onion and sea salt, cooking for 5 minutes. Next add ginger, cooking 1 to 2 minutes. Now add cayenne, and 1/4 cup water. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring.

Add carrots, 1 tsp. sea salt, and 4 cups water, to a rapid boil. Then reduce heat to a simmer on medium, uncovered.
You will cook this down for 25 minutes.

Now puree soup in food processor in batches.  Be sure not to overfill as the heat can make it spill over. Take pureed soup back to pot, add in 1 cup coconut milk and lemon juice, stirring. Dependent on the desired level of thickness you can add purified water to thin the soup out, or keep it thick like a stew as needed.

Simmer remaining 3/4 cup coconut milk in small saucepan on medium for 10 minutes, or until reduced by half.

Plate soup, and incorporate 2 tablespoons of hot coconut milk into each serving.  Swirl will create a nice design with your spoon.  Let your creativity take flight coming up with neat creative shapes an designs with the hot coconut milk.
