Curried Sweet Potato and Apple Soup
1 T olive oil
1 large onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 T finely chopped fresh ginger
1 t curry powder
3/4 t ground cumin
1/2 t salt
1/4 t ground cinnamon
4 C water
1 1/4 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
3 large granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
1/2 C chopped fresh cilantro
Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until tender.
Add the ginger, curry powder, cumin, salt, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the water, sweet potatoes, and apples and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring often, for 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are very tender.
In a food processor or blender, puree the soup in batches until very smooth, pouring each batch into a bowl. Reheat if necessary. Stir in the cilantro.
