Yam Soup

Yam Soup

1 tsp. vegetable oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 large yam or sweet potato, peeled and diced
1 clove garlic, minced
4 c. chicken broth (or imitation)
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
½ cup chunky salsa
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1 c. diced zucchini
1/2 c. cooked rice
2 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter

Heat the oil in a stockpot over medium heat. Saute onion, sweet potato, and garlic until onion is soft. Turn down heat if necessary to prevent burning.
Stir in the chicken broth, thyme and cumin. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir in salsa, garbanzo beans and zucchini. Simmer until tender, about 15 minutes.
Stir in the cooked rice and peanut butter until the peanut butter has dissolved. Serve hot with pita chips and a green salad.
