A simple and easy soup to make,this is a tasty way to spice up your dinner on a cold winters night.You can use left over potatoes to save time or bake them just before you use them either way this sweet potato soup is very very good.
I got the idea for this soup after reading 2 other recipes 1 for a baked potato soup and 1 for a spicey pumpkin soup. I looked at the pile of sweet potatoes on my counter just in from the garden and I thought why not. So I took what I liked from each recipe added a few things of my own and well there you have it, its soup!
I hope you all enjoy!
