1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon ground sage
¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
½ cup chopped carrots
3 cups chopped sweet potato, about 1 inch in size
5 cups reduced-sodium chicken stock
⅓ cup cream, coconut milk
2 cups chopped kale
3 tablespoons roasted seed mix , for topping.
On medium low heat and add the butter. Stir in the onion, garlic, salt, pepper and sage. Stir in the fresh nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the carrots and sweet potato, tossing everything to combine.
Pour in the chicken stock and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce it to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Cover and cook for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes cubes soften. Stir in coconut milk. Taste the soup and season with additional salt or pepper if needed.
A few minutes before serving, stir in the kale. I like to serve it almost immediately, but you can simmer the soup for another 10 minutes or so to soften it.
