Spicy African Yam Soup
This is a wonderful adventure in soup. I love the subtle combination of flavors. I have made this several time and I did tweak it a bit. I did not however omit any of the lovely seasonings. This soup seemed to scream for black beans, so I omitted the garbanzo beans and added two cans of rinsed black beans. I increased the cumin to taste and added an extra tablespoon of creamy peanut butter and an extra clove of minced garlic. I used medium hot salsa and omitted the rice and zucchini, which does not affect the overall flavor of this tasty soup. Just before adding peanut butter I used the emersion blender for a few whirls to puree but left some of the beans whole and various sized hunks of sweet potato. I just made another pot of this delightful soup and I think I will have dinner early tonight as my Spicy African Yam Soup is beckoning me.
