|African Peanut Soup, |
just a bit spicy to battle the winter chill.
... and no, this picture isn't that creative, but
I love using my snowflake dishes during the cold months!
How is making soup about creativity, you say? I say, how is following a recipe for a new combination of ingredients any different from following a pattern for a crocheted scarf? We love to make things by hand and from scratch, and whether we get guidance or total direction from a pattern or a recipe, or think up something totally original ourselves, we are sure to put our creative twist on it in some way.
Since these recipes are so seemingly … perfect (!) we will get creative with side dishes, presentations, and 2nd-go adaptations. You can’t keep the Creative down in we2!
And don’t worry about us for the summer months – this book has dessert soups, fruit soups, cold soups, plus our summers here in
are anything but long heated months of sun. We usually have spells of nice balmy weather during July, August and most of September though, so that’s when we’ll take advantage of those cold refreshing soups. (Plus we can cook, sample, and freeze for winter meals.) Right now, we are appreciating these hearty warming choices in our typical 40 degrees and rain monotony (with rare snowstorms) of October through March. Western Washington State

Also: ground turkey, chunky peanut butter, ginger, tomatoes.
I'm not sure what makes Muchi curry powder unique, but it tasted great in this recipe!

for the freezer, or for sharing!
Did I mention that this soup is full of nice lean ground turkey? Do you know that sweet potatoes are full of antioxidants and healthy fiber? This soup is not only delicious; it is good for you, too! Perfect…
