Curried Chicken and Cider Soup

I think I have a new favorite soup~I made this on Sunday and have wanted more since! It is super easy, good for you and so filling. I changed the recipe a bit to fit my budget and schedule a little better. So, so good!
Curried Chicken and Cider Soup
adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp salt
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin
1 cup apple cider
4 cups water
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into chunks
1 small head cauliflower, coarsely chopped
2 cups shredded chicken
In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add the onion, ginger and salt and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add curry powder, cumin and cook for about 3 minutes. Add cider, scraping bottom of the pan. Add 4 cups water and sweet potato and bring to a boil. Add the cauliflower, lower the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
Using a blender or hand blender, puree the soup. (I pureed until a bit thick, but still chunky.) Stir in the chicken and heat through. Season with salt and pepper.
