Did you ever think about the things you liked and did not like as a kid and wonder who the heck your were? When I was little, I’d eat liverwurst like it was going out of style. Fried, breaded mushrooms were often my entree at a restaurant I frequented with my parents, and while they are still delicious, what four year old devours them by the plateful? When I was in third and fourth grade, my best friend and I used to melt butter and those pre-wrapped cheese slices on frozen bagels and think we were in heaven.
But would I touch a strawberry or grape? Nope. I didn’t even like cheeseburgers. And cupcakes, I totally ate the frosting off the top and tossed the actual cupcake in the trash.
In college I opened my mind to salad (though I did drown it in honey mustard dressing and cheddar cheese) and stir fry, but most fruits and vegetables weren’t even a consideration until after
Another thing I would not touch? Sweet potatoes. Total craziness! But now, well now I will eat them in any way, shape or form – baked, as fries, mashed, and in this…
Sriracha Coconut Black Bean Soup with Sweet Potatoes is a recipe that you are going to love all winter long. The classic Latin-inspired soup is updated with Asian flair for a twist that breathes new life into this favorite. The coconut milk makes it smooth and creamy, jalapeno and sriracha hot sauce infuse a little heat, and lime brings that little bit of zing. After pureeing the soup into velvety goodness, more beans and sweet potatoes are added for a perfect contrast in texture and flavors. As an added bonus, this recipe is also gluten free and vegan!

Yes, Cascadian Farm now has Premium Organic Fire Roasted Sweet Potatoes. You get all of the sweet and smoky flavor in minutes, without all of the peeling and chopping. I tossed the sweet potatoes into the soup straight out of the freezer and let them heat through, making them perfect for these types of recipes. But if you want to serve them as a simple side dish, all you need to do is saute them in a pan with a little oil. Easy peasy, and so yummy too. I love having this quick option on hand for my little sweet potato monsters!
These Cascadian Farm Premium Organic Fire Roasted Sweet Potatoes are definitely going to become a new staple in my freezer. Make sure you look for them in the freezer section of your local grocery store!
