You can never have too many good soup recipes. This delicious Caribbean-inspired sweet potato and sesame soup is from the Veganuary website but it’s still delicious in February!

Simple and tasty, this soup is also full of great nutrients. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamins A and C, and potassium, perfect for replacing electrolytes after a hot yoga session. Throw in carrots, fresh ginger, garlic and you have a perfect winter meal-in-a-pot that will keep you warm and keep your body strong.
