This is About Soup

Homeowners need nourishment and boy have I found some. If you can believe it, I'm talking about soup. The recipe I found involves a crock pot, so proceed with caution.

The recipe is called Crockpot Sweet Potato Basil Soup. I've been omitting the basil mostly because we grew a year's supply of it this summer, but neglected to preserve it for the winter and now I just feel too guilty to touch the stuff.


There are 6 ingredients involved (7 if you use basil):

  • Sweet potatoes

  • Onion

  • Coconut milk

  • Garlic

  • Vegetable broth

  • Salt

  • Pepper

You can read the full recipe over at for the specifics, but know that it involves dropping these 6 (or 7) items into a slow cooker for 3 hours, pureeing the crock pot-ed mixture for a minute or two, and then eating it. Cheers!
