Full of flavor and with an inviting, rich aroma from the herbs and spices, this delicious twist on traditional Mexican tortilla soup is likely to be a hit. The addition of sweet potato brings extra flavor, satiation, and healing nutrients. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.
Sweet potatoes are an important glucose and glycogen storage food for the liver. All sweet potatoes and yams are beneficial, even white sweet potatoes. They help support almost every function for which the liver is responsible inside our bodies. Sweet potatoes have phytochemical properties that calm heated, angry, stagnant, sluggish, and toxic livers and help prevent spasming. They also offer a range of hormone-balancing phytochemicals for the liver; the liver uses sweet potatoes and yams to regulate and control some of its hormone functions.
Sweet Potato Tortilla Soup
Place a large ceramic nonstick pot on medium-high heat and add the 1 cup of onion and the garlic. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the onion is translucent, adding a spoonful of water if needed.
Add the chopped tomatoes, Healing Broth or water, tomato paste, chipotle powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, paprika, and maple syrup. Place the lid on and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add in the sweet potato and lime juice and cook for a further 10 to 15 minutes, until the sweet potato is very tender.
Divide between bowls and top with the extra onion and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately.
Makes 2 servings
* When you’re choosing between water and Healing Broth for the ingredients, keep in mind that the broth will produce a richer flavor. Store-bought vegetable stock isn’t called for because it’s very difficult to find a variety that’s free of oil, salt, natural flavors, and/or other additives. For convenience, make a batch of Healing Broth in advance and freeze it (consider ice cube trays for easy thawing) so you have it on hand for recipes like this.
