  • garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 ginger - fresh, finely grated
  • 2 gala apples - seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 celery stalks, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 sweet potatoes - peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  • 3 water
  • Salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cumin - more or less to taste
  • 1/2 onion powder
  • 1/2 cayenne pepper - more or less to taste (optional)
  • 7 1/2 chipolte peppers (optional - see Note below)
Container:Medium soup pot
  • In a medium soup pot, heat the oil, until simmering. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and cook over low heat. Stir until softened; approximately 7 minutes. Add the apples and celery, cooking for an additional 5 minutes. Now add the sliced sweet potatoes, chicken stock, and water. Bring to a boil. Cover partially and let simmer over low heat until the fruit and vegetables are very tender; approximately 45 minutes.
  • For spicier variation see the "Note" below and add the chipolte peppers and mole sauce (if peppers are in a mole sauce) now before the soup is pureed.
  • Use a blender(immersion blender is best) to puree the soup until smooth.
  • Season with salt and white pepper. Add the cumin, onion powder and cayenne papper, stir until blended well.
  • Garnish with crumbled feta or goat cheese, if desired and serve. Refrigerate remainder for up to a week.
Note: To add a flavorful spiciness to the soup, consider using chipolte peppers, either chopped bits or pureed into the soup base. Some chipolte peppers can be found in food stores as a canned product. The peppers are seeded and may be whole or chopped and may also be combined with a mole sauce. Add to taste for mild to hot intensities or serve in a seperate bowl and allow guests to add amounts to suit their taste buds. The addition of the mole sauce will increase the intensity of the flavor.
