Sweet Potato Coconut Soup

Speaking of food... as usual.... last night I made a soup.  I found a couple new websites, which I'll list below, that are great for new ideas of food that's easy, cheap and (sometimes) healthy, and speak a little bit further than rice + beans.  One of them, Broke Ass Gourmet :), actually lists prices and costs to make!  Granted, most of the food she says she has in her pantry already is food I don't have, and most of the food she has to buy might actually be in my pantry, but one way or another it's nice to see.

So, the soup I made last night was her recipe for Sweet Potato Coconut Soup.  I had my doubts, but it was just so, so cheap to make!  And I can't even tell you how great my apartment smelled while making it.  It literally has all of my favorite things : sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, jalapeno, ginger, coconut milk, lime, cilantro, etc.  It is sooooo good.
