The last time I posted this soup, I was whining, because the weather was in the 60s and going to drop to the 50s.  Right now it is 50 degrees and going lower.  Tomorrow will be even colder.  This is our winter right now.  So what better than a bowl of Sweet Potato Chipotle Bisque?  Pure comfort food for Jim and me!

Enjoy!

Jim and I have been hibernating today.  The after effects of Hurricane Patricia are still with us.  Who would have thunk that a hurricane in the Pacific would have this big an impact?  It’s been raining since early yesterday morning.  We go a lot of rain.  Not the 18 inches that had been expected.  But a good amount.  Overall, it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.  Some flash flood warnings.  If you are smart, you just stay home.

One good thing that happened was that with all the heavy winds, most of the dead fronds came off my palm trees.  Those trees is about 50 feet tall and still growing.  I had been planning on getting my tree guy to come and clean off the tree for winter.   Not now.

With the rains the temperature is dropping.  It’s about 66 now and will get a lot cooler.  Jim just told me that the wind was 37 miles per hour.  This is not our usual October weather.  It is definitely soup weather.  I pulled out my recipe for Sweet Potato Chiplote Bisque.  I have been making this soup for awhile.  I actually do it in the summer.  It is such a great soup.  I love the sweetness of the potato with the kick from the chipotle pepper. 

I originally got the recipe from Creative TV’s show ‘Vegan Mashup’.  So yes, this is all vegan.  You can use regular dairy products and it will turn out fine.  Later I found the recipe on line at The Vegan Latina. Read the rest of this entry »

Miso Sweet Potatoes on the Side

Posted on Updated on

From The Tasteful Muse!

 

I posted this in September.  It was warmer weather then, but I think this would make a different side for Thanksgiving!  It’s a wonderful combination of roasted sweet potatoes, purple onion, and miso.   Not overly sweet.  And you get a pop of saltiness from the miso.  We really liked it.  Hope you do too!

I saw this recipe and thought how yummy looking it is.  Then I thought, I haven’t really posted very many sweet potato recipes.  Shame on me.  Sweet potatoes are as much part of Thanksgiving as Turkey and pumpkin is.

 

So here is my start of catching up with sweet potato posts!

You all know that I love omelets.  So, when I was this recipe, I was intrigued.  It’s so beautiful.  And with Thanksgiving coming up, the sweet potato is right in season.  I think I would call this a frittata than an omelet.  This would be great for breakfast & dinner.  Or I don’t know about you, but I am going to do a lot of pot luck dinners for the season.  This would make a great addition!

I don’t know why I am seeing so many sweet potato recipes these days.  I love the taste of sweet potatoes.  Sweet potatoes are outstanding and are considered a “super food” as they are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, beta carotene (a vitamin A equivalent nutrient), vitamin C, and vitamin B6.  Maybe we need to start eating more?

A wonderful combination of roasted sweet potatoes, purple onion, and miso.  What is miso?  It’s a flavoring ingredient made from soybeans that had gone through the fermentation process.  You can buy it at any health food store, as well as places like Trader’s Joe and Whole foods!  The Tasteful Muse has other miso recipes!

From Julsy Loves!

These look so scrumptious!  I love the Chipotle Chili powder that is added.  This should give it a lovely smoky flavor.

I have only just started following this blog.  Julsy has a ton of great recipes that you should check out!
