So now I'm a vegetarian
Ok, so like I said, the soup came out great. However, cooking it was a bit of a struggle...I had to dice 1 onion, 2 carrots and a red pepper. I also had to cube a sweet potato, mince garlic and grate ginger. Finally, once all of the veggies, broth & spices were in the pot I had to PUREE the soup. This was a special pain since I don't have an immersion blender. Thus, I transferred the soup to my small blender in about 20-1/2 cup increments.
It was so worth it! Even my boyfriend, who is NOT a vegetarian enjoyed the meal. We were both left satisfied and were excited about the next day's dinner - WOOT!
