African Sweet Potato and Black Bean Soup

Ingredients
1/2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 medium red onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 medium sweet potato, diced
1/2 large yellow bell pepper, diced
1/2 medium jalapeno, seeds removed, diced
1/4 lb dried black beans, soaked overnight and cooked until tender
1/2 qt veggie broth
1/4 cup nut butter
1/4 cup boiling water
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1/2 medium lime, juiced
sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste

Directions
Heat the oil in a large soup pot. Add the curry paste and cinnamon. Stir for a minute so that the olive oil gets infused with spice. Add the onion, garlic, sweet potato, bell pepper, and jalapeƱo. Stir and cook the veggies for 5 to 7 minutes, until softened. Add the beans and broth. Melt the nut butter by mixing it with 1/2 cup boiling water. Add that to the mix. Add the red pepper flakes and cilantro. Bring the soup to a boil, then cover and simmer. Cook until veggies are tender, about 25 minutes. Stir in the lime juice. Season with salt and black pepper.
