Coconut curried Japanese Yam and kale soup

One bunch of Dinosaur/ Lacinato kale washed, stemmed and chopped

Three medium or one large Japanese Yam/purple sweet potato. Cut into 1 inch cubes

One medium yellow onion

One can of coconut milk

4 cups of vegetable broth

1 1/2 tablespoons of yellow curry

1 tablespoon of Tamari sauce

1 ounce of lime juice

3 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tablespoon of sesame oil

Cooking instructions;

In a large soup pot or Dutch oven and 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil to the cold pan and put on low heat. Once the oil is heated and the chop onion and stir to coat with the fat, Cook for 5 to 7 minutes until onions are translucent.  Increase the heat to medium high adding potatoes and stir to coat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Turn heat up to high and add coconut milk, vegetable broth and all seasonings. Cover and Let mixture boil for 5 to 7 minutes, at that time turn the heat to low and add kale to the top, making sure not to stir it into the liquid. You just want me to steam above the mixture so that it retains its color and it’s texture. Serves 8 to 10 peoples
