Curried Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup

It was such a gloomy day today so I was craving a comforting, warm bowl of soup. I had some sweet potatoes and cauliflower that I needed to use so figured it was worth a shot to mix them together into a nice soup. The end result was so fantastically flavourful and such a hit with the little one and husband, so I will share with you this delightful, healthy recipe that I will definitely be making again and again in the future.

1 tbsp butter or margarine
1 small chopped onion
2-3 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 398mL can chicken broth
2 cups water
3 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 cups cauliflower, chopped
Sour cream or plain yogurt to garnish
Chopped cilantro or parsley to garnish

Melt butter or margarine in large pot. Add onions, garlic, salt and pepper and saute until nicely browned.

Add curry, cumin, and cinnamon. Raise heat and add chicken broth and water and let it come to a boil. Lower heat and add sweet potatoes and cauliflower and simmer until tender, about 25-30 minutes. Using a hand blender, puree all ingredients until nice and smooth. 

Serve in a bowl with a dollop of sour cream (or yogurt) and chopped cilantro to garnish.
