Here are some of my favorite soup recipe I use in my crock Pot:

Purple Cabbage & Sweet Potato Soup

This soup can be as mild or as spicy as you like. We threw in a lot of red pepper flakes for heat, and holy mama - it cured all ills!

1 tablespoon light olive oil or peanut oil
1 1/2 teaspoons hot or mild curry paste, or cumin, to taste
1 medium red onion, peeled, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large sweet potato or yam, peeled, diced
1/2 head purple cabbage, shredded
1 large yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded, diced
1 large Anaheim or Cubanelle pepper, seeded, diced
1 14-oz. can white or pinto beans, rinsed, drained
2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or sunflower butter) melted in a half cup of boiled water or broth
1 14-oz. can light coconut milk
2 tablespoons vegan Worcestershire sauce (or molasses)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, for heat, to taste
2-3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Juice from 1 fresh lime
1 tablespoon agave nectar, or organic light brown sugar, if it needs it
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

For garnish:
Chopped fresh cilantro or chopped peanuts

Heat the olive oil in large soup pot. Add the curry powder or cumin and stir for a minute to infuse the oil with spice. Add the onion, garlic, sweet potato, cabbage, yellow pepper and Anaheim pepper. Stir and cook the veggies for 5 -7 minutes, until softened.

Add the beans, broth, peanut butter, coconut milk, Worchestshire sauce, red pepper flakes and cilantro.

Bring the soup to a high simmer, cover, and lower the heat; keep the soup on simmer and cook until the vegetables are tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Stir in the lime juice and taste test for seasoning adjustments. Add a little brown sugar, if needed. Season with sea salt and ground pepper, to taste. Warm through.

Serve with a sprinkle of chopped cilantro or peanuts.

Serves 4 as a hearty meal. It's terrific with gluten-free cornbread.

Cook's Note:
This soup works well in a Crock Pot or slow cooker. Combine the ingredients in your cooker and follow the manufacturer's guidance for cooking vegetable soup.
