Sweet Potato Soup with Orange and Avocado

  Cold weather means soups are back on the menu!  Too bad for us G won’t even give soup a chance.  …too bad for him his mama is stubborn as a mule and is gonna keep trying.

1 c sweet potato
1/2 c vegetable broth
1/2 c unsweetened coconut milk
1-2 Tbsp orange juice
a pinch orange zest
salt to taste
1/2 tsp chipotle powder
avocado to garnish
  Chop your (peeled) sweet potato into small pieces and wrap it in a wet dishcloth.  Microwave it for 6 minutes or until soft.  Mash 1 cup and mix into your broth and coconut milk.  Add your juice, spices and zest to taste at this point and blend with an immersion blender until smooth.  Serve topped with avocado.
  We added a bit more orange to this than was in the original recipe.  Ever since the pumpkin chili with orange in it I’ve been kind of drawn to recipes with orange in them.  It’s a nice, fresh flavor that we’ve really been enjoying.  Alas, G was having nothing to do with it.  Something about the idea of soup just doesn’t sit well with him and our little boy who will eat just about anything won’t even try soup.
  Challenge accepted kid.
