Spicy African Peanut Soup

Source: Peas and Thank You

An incredible tasty and easy soup to make. I loved using the coconut milk.

INGREDIENTS

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 sweet potato, cubed (about 1 c. total)
1 1/2 t. curry powder
1/2-3/4 t. garam masala (depending on how spicy you like it)
1 t. cumin
1 T. minced ginger
2 t. minced garlic
stevia to taste (I used a pinch of sugar)
dash of cinnamon
1 14 oz. can fire roasted tomatoes, in juice
1 can light coconut milk
2 c. vegetable stock
2 T. natural peanut butter
1/2 c. red lentils, drained and rinsed (can substitute quinoa, if desired)

Optional garnishes: cilantro, chopped peanuts, sour cream or plain yogurt (vegan, if desired)

DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot and turn to high for about an hour. This gets your crock pot good and going, then switch it to low for the next several hours.

Serve and enjoy!
