You guys… thank you so much for participating in my poll. In case you missed it, I posted this poll on Facebook, and the result has been great. Remember what I said about me enjoying Asian food lately on this Sichuan Chili Oil post. I guess it’s not just me because you guys also picked the same type of dish. But this dish won’t disappoint you either. Plus, it came straight from my new cookbook, 5-Ingredient One-Pot Cookbook, which means that it’s easy to prep using fresh ingredients, and is both delicious and friendly on your wallet. No kidding!
Just the other day, I went to a lab to get my blood drawn, and the lab technician counted the total tubes I had taken from me, and it was 11 in total! Yikes, eleven bloody blood tubes. Luckily, I had enough liquid in the morning; however, I felt I needed more of it to gain what I had lost. So, the soup was the obvious answer.
This sweet potato Thai curry soup is so easy to make, even if you’re a beginner in the kitchen. And, with only five ingredients, there’s no way you can make any mistakes in preparing it. Now here’s the fun part – when I say five ingredients, I mean 5. It is made with chicken as part of your protein. However, you can use tofu instead if you’re a vegetarian or vegan.
First time enjoying sweet potato? Make it into a smoothie! Combine 1 cup of cubed sweet potatoes with almond butter, two Medjool dates, milk, and a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon.
