Mint infused spicy “light soup” with yams

The soup base is made with onions, tomatoes, garlic, ginger and herbs. What you will need:

5 large tomatoes
4 large onions
Half a clove of garlic
A finger ‘ s measure of ginger
Seasoning of choice
Mint leaves
Bay leaves
Fresh hot peppers
Yam or potato

First boil the onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger in water for about 15 to 20 minutes. Using a cooking spoon, remove the onions, garlic, pepper and tomatoes and blend together to form a paste. Ginger tends to be very hard so I prefer to leave it in the soup as it is.

Add the blended paste back into the pot and stir. Now you can add herbs and extra seasonings. Add some salt if needed and your cubed yam or potatoes and mushrooms and that’s it!  Want a slightly sweeter soup? Add some carrots and blend in! šŸ™‚
