Welcome to “Ladles”, an ongoing series of healthy soups, stewps and gumbos!
A year ago my son gave me the Moosewood Restaurant cookbook, Simple Suppers, for Christmas. This recipe originated from this cookbook with a few tweaks and additions.
I urge you to try it even if you aren’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes or cabbage. This Indonesian flavored soup is savory (garlic and ginger root!), slightly spicy (cayenne!), bizarre (peanut butter!) and creamy (there’s NO cream!). Serve as a fancy shmancy fine dining course OR at halftime of the Super Bowl to sober up the crowd. Your guests will think they’re dreamin’!
Don’t be ashamed to lick your spoon- I did!
