  • Using a fork, poke the sweet potatoes in several places. Microwave on high for 7-10 minutes or until cooked through. Allow to cool.

  • Using a large saucepan or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the yellow onion, and cook for 2-4 minutes until it begins to brown, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, and cook for an additional minute. Add the vegetable juice, chiles, ginger, and allspice. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil and cook for 10 minutes.

  • Peel the potatoes, chop them into one-inch pieces, and add half to the pot. Using a food processor, process the remaining potatoes, vegetable broth, and peanut butter until completely smooth.

  • Add the pureed mixture to the saucepan or Dutch oven, stirring well to combine. Season with pepper to taste. Continue heating until the bisque is thoroughly hot.

  • Just before serving, garnish with the cilantro.
