Black quinoa and sweet potato creamy soup
Believe me or not, but this black quinoa and sweet potato creamy soup is one of my best cooking creations ever! And can you imagine, that a year ago I didn’t even know what quinoa is? Well, I can’t believe it, because I love this little grain so much right now! It’s perfect to for adding some crunch, texture and protein to your vegetarian dishes, and it’s so easy to cook too.
I combined a comforting sweet potato pottage with black quinoa, chickpeas, spices and coconut milk for extra creaminess. Do you hear how yummy it is? And my four-year old asked me for seconds twice!
What you’ll need :
1 liter of vegetarian broth or a chicken broth
3 really big sweet potatoes
1 big carrot
1 teaspoon of freshly grounded cumin seeds
Salt & pepper
1/4 teaspoon grounded chilli (optional)
1 cup of cooked black quinoa
1 cup of chickpeas ( can be from a can)
1 can of coconut milk
Cut sweet potatoes and carrots in cubes, and cook in the broth. When veggies will be soft, add spices, and using a hand mixer mix them in to a pottage. Add quinoa, coconut milk and chickpeas. Let it simmer on a low heat.
Serve your quinoa and sweet potato creamy soup with loads of fresh cilantro, and enjoy!
