Sweet Potato Soup

Sweet Potato Soup

Most sweet potato soup recipes call for so many other ingredients that the sweet potato flavor is muted. By cutting back to just shallot, thyme, and butter and using water instead of broth, we put the focus back on the main ingredient. We also puree some of the potato skins into the soup for extra earthiness. However, the real key to intensifying the sweet potato flavor was using only a minimal amount of flavor-diluting water. To do so, we let the sweet potatoes sit in hot water off heat for 20 minutes to make use of an enzyme that reduces their starch content. Less starch meant we could create a soup with less water, keeping the sweet potato flavor in the forefront.

Chicken Adobo in Coconut Milk

Adobo

This is another recipe from “The Philippine Cookbook”. I made this recently for my husbands Filipino birthday dinner. I used cubed boneless skinless chicken breasts. I just cooked it in the pot until the sauce was reduced. I didn’t bother with the broiler. I also used white vinegar as I don’t care for apple cider vinegar. It was great! I might try it in the crockpot next time.
