I REALLY LIKED THIS RECIPE BECAUSE IT WAS SO EASY AND THEY DIDN’T BLEND THE SOUP.  THE SWEET POTATOES WILL MUSH UP IN TIME ANYHOW!

I USED MY CROCK POT – ELIMINATED OIL (TO CUT DOWN ON FAT, THREW EVERYTHING IN EXCEPT THE SPICES AND PEANUT BUTTER (WHICH I ADDED IN THE LAST HOUR OF COOKING)  AND COOKED ON LOW 4-6 HOURS (HIGH 2-3 HOURS).

VEGETARIAN AND GLUTEN FREE RECIPE-ALTHOUGH PEANUTS MAY HAVE SOME CROSS-CONTAMINATION SO READ YOUR LABELS OR ELIMINATE THE ROASTED PEANUTS IF YOU ARE THAT SENSITIVE TO GLUTEN.
