Ingredients:

> 2 sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
> 1 onion chopped
> 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
> 2 cloves of garlic pressed

> 1/4 cup peanut butter

> 1 tsp turmeric
> 1/2 cup coconut milk
> Salt to taste

> 1/2 cup chopped toasted cashews

> 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
> 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (optional)

Directions:

> In a pot, sauté onions over medium heat in the olive oil.

> Sauté for 5 minutes then add pressed garlic, turmeric, cayenne, salt and pepper. Continue to sauté for about 3 more minutes.

> Add broth then sweet potatoes, bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until sweet potatoes are very tender. Approx. 30 minutes.

> Add peanut butter, lime juice and coconut milk. Mix well until peanut butter is melted.

> Use immersion blender to blend soup into its smooth and creamy goodness. If it is too thick, add more coconut milk.
