Soup for Annie

My colleague Annie was curious about the recipe for the soup I made the other she goes:

Sweet Potato and Coconut Quinoa Soup

2 Large Sweet Potatoes

2 Tbsp water

1/2 cup onion

1/2 cup Quinoa

3 cups Vegetable stock

1 cup coconut milk

1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp Chili powder

1/4 cup plain yogurt (optional)

 Wash and peel potatoes. Cut into  2-3" pieces.  Boil until just soft but not mushy (roughly 6 mins I found)

Place water and onion in large saucepan over medium heat and cook until the onions soften.  Stir in quinoa and vegetable stock and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium and cook for 15 mins until quinoa is cooked.

 Add sweet potato to the saucepan. Puree the mixture with a hand blender. Return to low heat and stir in coconut milk. Add cayenne and chili powder.  (yogurt can be added on top when serving)

This was delicious and I am a crazy big fan of Quinoa!!! I would have added a bit more spice next time and I think if you want to reduce calories you could probably add less coconut milk.  However it was super delicious and lasted me for quite a few lunches.
