Curried Purple Cabbage and Sweet Potato Soup
Serves 3 to 4

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 celery stalks, chopped
1 cup chopped onion
1 medium-to-large head of purple cabbage, chopped
5 to 6 garlic cloves
2 cups chopped sweet potato
One 14-ounce can coconut milk
2 cups vegetable broth
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the coconut oil and let it melt. Add the celery and onion and cook until soft and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the cabbage and garlic and sauté until the cabbage is wilted and the garlic is browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the sweet potato, coconut milk, vegetable broth, curry, thyme, and cayenne, if using. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and allow the soup to cook until the sweet potato is soft, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve.
