What You Need: 

1 tablespoon coconut oil or 1/2 cup water

1 teaspoon coriander
5 cups filtered water
1 tablespoon sweet white miso, dissolved in 1/4 cup water
Chopped fresh parsley or cilantro, for garnish 

What You Do:

  1. In a large saucepan or stockpot, heat oil. Add sweet potatoes, carrots, and salt and sauté for 3 minutes. Add curry powder, cinnamon, and coriander and sauté until well coated. Add water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 15 minutes until vegetables are soft.
