Soup is always welcomed, especially in the cold winter time when the extra heat from a hot soup can be very comforting. It’s a great way to consume healthy amounts of delicious and nutritious homemade stock. It’s also a good way to use all kinds of vegetables scraps from your refrigerator in need of a vocation, especially with a puréed soup where nobody will ever notice your clever use of many disparate vegetables.
The following soup is different from many others in the use of sausage meat to give it a spicy taste and a great consistency. It’ll also be a soup that’s more filling than your usual watery soup.
Chorizo is a great choice of sausage for this soup, but any good quality spicy pork sausage will do. Choose sausages that come from your local farmer or butcher for which you know are only made from good and whole ingredients without any fillers or gluten. It’s even better if you choose a sausage made from pasture-raised meat.
Chorizo is a type of spicy pork sausage originating mainly from Spain, but that also has its own adaptation in many European countries. It has become a highly popular sausage and is now available all over the U.S. at butchers and specialty meat and sausage shops. The original Spanish chorizo and well as the Portuguese one get their heat and smoky flavor mainly from smoked paprika. Chorizo can be available both fresh or cured and dried, but fresh sausage is the right choice for the following recipe.
Sweet potatoes, being a source of non-toxic starchy carbohydrates, are a great source of glucose energy to your cells, especially when in need for fuel to do some intense training or in the cold winter time. Remember that carbohydrates are not the enemy and that, especially if you don’t have a damaged metabolism, sources of starchy carbohydrates are often an even better bet than most fruits that also contain appreciable amounts of fructose, which can become a big problem in high enough amounts. Our ancestors would certainly have enjoyed energy dense starchy vegetables whenever they were available.
The following soup is not only delicious, but is also very simple and quick to prepare. In fact, it should be ready in less than 25 minutes. Most of the main ingredients also happen to be very common ones for Paleo aficionados so you might already have all it takes in your kitchen right now.
