Curried Sweet Potato Soup (Crock Pot)

Have you ever had this dream or rather something you have wanted to accomplish but not sure how to go about doing it? Right now that is me. I so badly want to do this thing but I'm almost too nervous (definitely too nervous) to tell anyone about it for fear of sounding silly. I've told two people about my dream and of course they support me...I mean they kind of have to considering one is my husband and the other is my Mum. If they didn't support me I'd disown them. Not really. Well, maybe not really but we won't ever have to find out because they said all the right things. Go Mum and hubby!
Anyways, back to my dream. As many of you know besides God, family is most important to me. Having a healthy, happy family is huge on my list. So, besides family I love cooking and writing. Of course, I do, I am pretty great at it..kidding. I just love to toot my own horn. I'm really not that conceited. Most of my recipes on my blog are my own original recipes. I get rave reviews from everyone that tries them. Ok...deep breath....big reveal time! My dream is to one day write a cook book. Not just a cook book with recipes but I want there to be a story that goes along with it. My dream is to make a healthy family friendly cook book. I have no idea where to start about making this dream a reality so for now, I blog away. 

The recipe I am sharing with you today is an original of mine. I was pleasanlty surprised with how this turned out. I wasn's sure how I would like the texture of it. Yes, I'm one of those people, I have texture issues. It turned out quite good though! My 4 your old (major picky eater right there) even tried it!  Hope you enjoy it as much as we all did!

Curried Sweet Potato Soup (Crock Pot)


2 large sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)
1/2 yellow onion (sliced)
1 15oz can coconut milk
3 cups chicken broth  (I make my own, if you have none on hand low sodium store bought works)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tsp ginger

1. Add all of your ingredients to your crock pot. Cook on high for 3 hours.

2. After the 3 hours, add the ingredients to a blender, magic bullet or food processor. Whatever you may have will work for this. I used my trusty magic bullet. Blend until smooth. If your soup has cooled down add to a pot and using low heat, warm it on the stove. 

Easy peasy and delicious!
