Split Pea Sweet Potato Soup
Yum...what a great way to start the New Year.
I have been cooking some amazing soups for my blog which I plan to highlight many different types of soups throughout the Winter season. This soup was one of my favorites. I love sweet potatoes and split peas, so I married the two for an amazing soup mix. I had 2 bowls full with some homemade garlic & cheese bread.
For this soup I used these ingredients:
2 cups of freshly cooked split pea
2 nice large sweet potatoes or yams
2 small potatoes
(cut in small cubes)
2 cups of white beans
3 envelopes of Jamon mix for a ham flavor
(this is an artificial ham flavoring found in any Spanish store)
1 envelope of Sazon
1/4 of tofu
5 sprigs of cilantro
1 tsp. black pepper
1 sliced yellow onion
1 tsp. Kosher salt
1tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
2 cups of vegetable broth
First mix the tofu in a blender with the vegetable broth. Pour that mix with all the other ingredients in a nice large pot. Cook until the broth becomes nice and thick, then add a dash of some red crushed peppers for decor and flavor to each serving.
