Spicy African Yam Soup Recipe
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 cup chunky salsa
- 1 (15.5 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained
- 1 cup diced zucchini
- 1/2 cup cooked rice
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
step 1: Heat the oil in a stockpot over medium heat. Saute onion, sweet potato, and garlic until onion is soft. Turn down heat if necessary to prevent burning.
step 2: Stir in the chicken broth, thyme and cumin. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir in salsa, garbanzo beans and zucchini. Simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.
step 3: Stir in the cooked rice and peanut butter until the peanut butter has dissolved. Serve hot with pita chips and a green salad.
