Road Trip Detox Part One: Chilled Sweet Potato Carrot Soup

Since Ian and I ate a ton of fatty, greasy, not exactly healthful foods for almost two weeks on vacation, I quickly returned our daily eats to the kind of comforting whole foods we usually eat on a daily basis. My first object was to get some veggies into our systems, so I decided to just barely cook one giant sweet potato (a little longer than the rest of the ingredients, obviously), 1/2 an onion, and three giant organic carrots in olive oil. Once soft, I added them to the blender and then added about a cup of chicken stock. After chilling overnight, I ate a few bowls over the week along with a garnish of fat free Chobani and a few sprigs of cilantro.

Detox complete!

Yum! I think I need to make this.

Oh shoot! I forgot to mention I usually add some curry powder (in this case my own concoction)--it adds a little zing, but I imagine any kind of spice will do.
