    This is one of my favorite soups because of it’s so simple to make yet still yields a rich, rustic texture. A few simple spices and fresh ginger beautifully compliment the sweetness of the potatoes.
    Unlike a lot of soups I prepare, I like to leave this one un-blended. The softness of the potatoes pieces is really comforting. This soup goes great with a piece of gluten-free bread. I also like to top it with a mild salsa or chutney.
    Mango chutney offers a delightful surprise to the palate and makes for a sophisticated presentation.
