Will this winter ever end? I swear I am going to lose my mind if we get any more snow. I miss the sun. Basically the only good thing about this incessant winter is all the delicious soups I have been able to make. This soup is not an exception. It even got Blair to eat peas! (Although the red bell peppers still went untouched… baby steps.)

- 1tbsp coconut oil
- 1 small white onion; diced

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Peel and then spiralize the sweet potato. Spray a sheet pan with oil, place the spiralized sweet potato on it and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.
Add coconut oil and onion to a large pot. Cook the onion until transparent for about 5-6 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, and red bell pepper. Cook for another 2 minutes and then add the curry powder and cumin. Cook one minute then add the vegetable broth mixture and the coconut milk. Simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes.
