I’ve been searching for new and interesting comfort food recipes to try recently and stumbled on Growing Up Paleo, a blog written by Chrissy Gower about paleo pregnancy and raising a paleo child. She’s also a trainer at Robb Wolf’s NorCal Stength and Conditioning, and leads the Paleo Talk Seminar with Everyday Paleo‘s Sarah Fragoso.
Her Sweet Potato Chowder caught my eye and it’s on my to do list this weekend!
- 2-3 large sweet potatoes
- 2 cups of cut up chicken (I used a rotisserie style chicken)
- 2 cans of chicken stock or broth
- 1/2 cup of coconut milk or heavy cream
- 1 small onion chopped
- 2 celery stalks chopped
- 2 jalapenos chopped
- 2 TBS butter or olive oil
Bake your sweet potatoes at 350 it will take about 1 hour or until soft (I quartered mine and wrapped them in tin foil to cook them faster). Once sweet potatoes are cooked remove the skin and place sweet potato in a food processor or blender and puree. I added a little bit of my chicken broth during the puree process to help smooth it out. Saute your onion and celery (next time I would add carrots too) in the butter or olive oil until tender. Add pureed sweet potatoes, remaining chicken broth and bring to a slow boil. Add the 1/2 cup of coconut milk, jalapenos, chicken, and a little salt. Reduce to a simmer for about 10 minutes and enjoy!!
