Sweet and Spicy Cancer-Fighting Soup

Give sweet potatoes some zing with this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Spicy Sweet Potato Soup. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant substance that turns to vitamin A in the body and may protect cells from damage that leads to cancer. It shows up in orange-colored produce like sweet potatoes, carrots and cantaloupe.

Our recipe blends the sweetness of these potatoes with onion, garlic, ginger and a fusion of jalapeno pepper and Thai curry paste. Smoothed out with light coconut milk and a little orange juice, the taste will delight you while its generous servings (1.5 cups each) fill you up without many calories.
