Purple Potato Vegetable Soup

Have you heard the buzz lately about the cancer-fighting, memory boosting purple potato? If you’ve tried it, awesome! If not, give it a go! What I find most challenging with the purple potato is its awfully dry consistency. I have to drink a large gulp of water after each bite or the potato will get stuck in my throat. If you haven’t experienced this, maybe we’re eating different varieties?

I also added some slices of ginger, few cloves of garlic and a couple of dates to add some sweetness. I chopped up all the ingredients and cooked them till soft. Use an electric soup maker, slow cooker or the good ol’ pot on a stove (reduce the heat after all the veggies have boiled and let simmer for 1-2 hours).
