This soup manages to be rich and creamy, and somehow also cleansing and soothing—perfect Post-Super Bowl fare. Whether you’re still celebrating the Giants’ big win, or quietly mourning the Pats’ fall from grace (like I am), you still need to eat—preferably something quick and healthy. Add cubed firm tofu, a handful of plump shrimp or cooked, shredded chicken, if you want to add a little protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cooking oil (if you have coconut oil, it works nicely here) Pantry
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped Pantry
  • 1 1" piece ginger, peeled and minced $0.50
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped $0.50 for a whole onion
  • zest and juice of 1 lime $0.50
  • 1 quart vegetable (or chicken) broth $3.50
  • 1 15-oz. can coconut milk $1.50
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (or more to taste) Pantry
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar or honey Pantry
  • 3 medium or 2 large sweet potatoes (garnet yams), scrubbed and diced into 1" pieces (leave the skin on) $3
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro leaves, chopped $1 for a bunch
  • sliced green jalapeño optional
  • Asian chili sauce optional

Recipe Serves 6

Directions

  2. Add the garlic, ginger, onion and lime zest and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes, until very fragrant.
