Sorry its been a while since I’ve posted a new recipe. Its been a busy busy whirl-wind. I mean, I have to wake up, brush my teeth, drink coffee and its just soooo much to do. Ok, I really do have more to do than that. But I don’t really have an excuse.
What I do have though is a new recipe. I got this one from a former coworker at my bridal shower…. 3 years ago! Its crazy to think I’ve been married to my best friend for nearly 3 years!
This is a great vegetarian soup, and apparently, it has a complete protein with the sweet potato and the peanuts and beans. (That’s what someone told me, so correct me in the comments if I’m wrong – I haven’t checked)
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 medium chopped onion
- 2 minced cloves of garlic
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
- 8 cups of chicken broth
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 cup uncooked rice
- 3 cups salsa
- 3 cups garbanzo beans
- 2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
Saute onions, garlic and potatoes in the olive oil. Add chicken broth, cumin and rice. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30-40 minutes or until rice is soft. Add salsa, beans and peanut butter and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
