Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

Vicki Pollitt


I double the crushed red pepper as prefer a little more flavor. Chopped green onions are great instead of white onions as well. You can make this on a personal level for just yourself or two with one or two sweet potatoes, a can of chicken broth and seasonings to taste and have dinner in about 15 minutes.
