Spicy African Yam Soup: Serves 8
One of the things I love about food and cooking is how it can help us connect (or stay connected) to the natural rhythm of life. With the change of seasons, we get to see a different list of fresh ingredients in the market, bringing our awareness to the changes in nature-- things getting quieter, cooler, our bodies seeking heartier, denser food to prepare for the coming of winter. Anytime we can bring our focus to a deeper connection to the natural world around us, there exists the invitation to remember that we are not alone and that there is more going on than our singular dramas and preoccupations. Food is a simple way to call us back to the bigger picture and to comfort us on so many levels of our being!
Try this hearty, healthy stew to light the internal fires on a cold night!
