Make Your Own: Sweet Potato Soup

This one comes to you from Kate's Green Book- I had the pleasure of making it with her when we got together to cook a few weeks ago.  I think I have made it three times on my own already! I ALWAYS make it with lobster because hey, why not!?

If you're going without the lobster, this would make a perfect baby food!!!

Sweet Potato Soup

2 lbs. sweet potatoes
1 cup chopped onions
1 T. fresh ginger, minced
2 c. chicken (or veg.) broth
1 T. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1 cinnamon stick

Poke hole in the sweet potatoes’ skins with a fork and place on a rimmed baking sheet.
Roast whole sweet potatoes for 1 hour at 400 degrees.

Saute onions in a little olive oil until wilted.

Scoop out potatoes and puree in a blender with onions, minced ginger and 1 cup broth.
Add second broth, continue to puree until completely smooth.

Return puree to pot, stir in brown sugar and nutmeg, toss in cinnamon stick and simmer
over low heat for 30 minutes.

Optional: Top soup with chopped lobster baked with butter or boiled and tossed with a
little clarified butter.

This looks really good! I would have though it would be more orange.

It's orange if you use yams, white if you use sweet potatoes!!!

Michelle J said...

I thought yams and sweet potatoes were the same thing? My goodness I have a lot to learn!

This is even more confusing than how I understood it:
