Soup is what’s been for dinner. And lunch several times a week during these cold days of winter for me (only 57 more days until spring and yes, I’m counting.)

Cheesy Broccoli and Greens Soup and Pasta Fagioli with Greens have been on rotation for the month of January but I wanted to get another soup recipe happening.

Enter sweet potatoes.

I know sweet potatoes are all the rage but honestly, I rarely buy them. I like them well enough but they’re simply never a veggie that’s top of mind for me to buy for some reason.

Until this soup which I was inspired to make for this month’s Recipe ReDux theme:

Favorite Kitchen Tool

Did you receive a trendy new cooking gadget as a holiday gift? Or do you have a tried-and-true kitchen tool you couldn’t do without? Show us a healthy recipe highlighting a favorite kitchen tool, gadget, or gizmo.

Honestly, it’s hard for me to pick a FAVORITE kitchen tool – there’s so many I rely on day in and day out but my new favorite is definitely my refurbished Blendtec [affiliate link] which I gifted to myself for the holidays.

I wanted to get a Blendtec for years (I prefer the Blendtec dull blade vs. Vitamix’s sharp blade) but the price tag always eluded me. The answer: Buy a refurbished model for close to 1/2 of the price of a new model, which I did.

So what does Certified Refurbished mean?

  • Tested and certified by Blendtec or a third-party refurbisher to look and work like new
  • Process includes functionality testing, inspection, reconditioning and repackaging
  • Includes a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty

And it’s been such an awesome addition to my kitchen. I recently did some testing on making a variety of nut butters for an upcoming article – something I could never make at home until getting the Blendtec.

OK onto the soup. This came together so easily and the spices are what make it zing – sweet curry powder, cumin, turmeric and cayenne red pepper – yee haw!
