This Bastyr Dining Commons favorite adds colorful nutrition to your day, sweetened by the combination of carrots and coconut milk, then spiced up with the ginger and garlic.
Saute onion in olive oil in a stock pot until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in 1 teaspoon salt. Add celery, carrots, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, jalapeno, stock and coconut milk, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are very soft (about 1 hour). Puree soup in a blender and put through a food mill or wire strainer. Add agave, lime juice, pepper and salt. Reheat and garnish each bowl with cilantro to serve.
