Directions

1. Cook quinoa according to package directions, and set aside.

2. In the meantime, in a Dutch oven or stockpot, add sweet potato, onion, garlic, ginger, paprika, cumin and chili pepper. Whisk in stock, and bring to a simmer. Allow to cook, semi-covered for 12-15 minutes.

3. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. Whisk in lime zest and juice, sugar, coconut milk and cayenne (if using). Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if necessary.

4. Divide the soup into bowls and spoon quinoa into the soup. Serve garnished with parmesan (if using) and fresh chopped cilantro. Enjoy!

Note: For those enjoy the non-vegan version, feel free to use feta cheese instead of parmesan, it’s delicious.
