This is another warming, healthy soup that is excellent for a cleansing week as well as for an everyday lunch! The more fresh coriander you add, the more detoxifying the soup becomes.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 pinch red chili flakes
1 cup chopped leeks or onions
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger or 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
2 tablespoons tamari or Bragg Liquid Aminos
5 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 teaspoons coriander
1 teaspoon garam masala
6 cups vegetable stock (look for yeast-free stock or make your own if you are on the candida diet)
¼ cup chopped fresh coriander (or more if you enjoy the taste)
Heat the oil in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add the red chili flakes, leeks, ginger, and tamari/aminos. Saute for two or three minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and sauté until they are well coated and begin to brown slightly. Add the coriander and garam masala. Saute another two minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the vegetable stock to cover the sweet potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer until the sweet potatoes are tender. Blend with a hand blender or food processor into a smooth consistency, adding more stock as necessary. Reheat before serving and garnish with the chopped corriander.
