Sea salt and black pepper to taste
2 c. vegetable stock

1. Finely chop the onion, hot pepper, garlic and ginger. Add to a pan with a little
olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Sauté on mid to high heat until the onion softens.

2. Dice the sweet potato. Slice the shiitake mushrooms. Add these two ingredients,

enough vegetable stock to cover all the ingredients. Simmer well, until the potato is
soft.

3. At this stage, add the soup to a blender, and blend into a vivid orange, spicy
soup.
