PaleOMG Sweet Potato Soup

Recently a friend introduced me to the site PaleOMG.com a site of paleo recipes that are so good you'd never know they were paleo.  Just looking at this site make me hungry!

I decided to try the Crockpot Sweet Potato Basil Soup because I love creamy soups and my crockpot!

It is SO freaking good AND SOOO freaking easy.  I followed the recipe pretty much exactly as is, but because it's soup I took some liberties here and there.

What you need:
2            sweet potatoes or yams (I used 3 because they were small)
1/2         yellow onion  (I used 1 whole small onion)
1 can     coconut milk
1 cup     vegetable broth
2            garlic cloves minced
1 Tbsp   dried basil
salt & pepper to taste

1) Peel your sweet potatoes and chunk them up - throw into crock pot.

2) Add onion (don't worry about dicing it really fine)

3) Add everything else and give it a little mix.

4) Cook on high for 3 hours.

5) Use a blender, hand blender, or food processor to blend until smooth.  I used a hand blender and I LOOOOOVE it.  I have used it a lot lately, and in the next few weeks of posts you'll probably get tired of hearing about it. (it's just like this one, except it's only one speed)
