Does the holiday season have you running ragged? Here’s a slowwww-cooker recipe that will warm you up and not keep you in the kitchen too long.
If you’d rather take the time, just bring it to a boil on the stove, reduce to a simmer and cook stirring occasionally until the potatoes are soft (nuke the potatoes in the microwave first if you’re really impatient).

If made with organic vegetable stock, it is vegan as well. Add additional vegetables like spinach or kale if you need more fiber and vitamins, beans for vegetarian protein or grilled pork to satisfy the meat-eaters, too.

Serves 4
Ingredients:
3 lbs. sweet potatoes, roughly chopped and peeled or not
1 sweet onion, chopped (if tolerated or omit)
2 stalks of sliced celery
2 chopped medium carrots
1-2 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
5 cups of organic low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup of coconut milk
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper or cinnamon, all-spice or nutmeg (if tolerated) to taste
Preparation:
Place all ingredients except the coconut milk in a slow cooker. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low 6 hours or on high for 4 hours. Puree everything in a blender or leave chunky. Add coconut milk, stir thoroughly and cook another 30 minutes. Adjust seasoning and serve warm with a sprig of parsley for color.
