Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the sweet potatoes: peel and coarsely chop them into 2 cm pieces. Finely chop the onion and garlic.
  2. Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook 4-5 min, taking care not to let them burn. Add the sweet potatoes, grated ginger, cumin, Cayenne pepper, and broth. Bring to a boil while stirring often. Lower the heat then cook 15 min, covered, until the potatoes are soft.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor. Put the soup back in the pot on the stove. Add the Tahini paste (optional)then reheat for a few minutes. Pour in the lime juice. Adjust the seasoning.
  4. If desired, you may garnish each bowl with a dollop of sour cream, diced tomato, and fresh cilantro leaves. Serve.
