Sweet Potato Soup

Vicki H


I saw this in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine. Tried it, and we really like it. The more we ate of it, the better we liked it. Very different flavor for a "soup"

This has a sweet,tangy, savory flavor.

Its a creamy soup - without the milk or cream!

  1. SORRY NO PHOTO - Should have taken one when I made this last week.

    In saute pan, or 2qrt or larger pot - cook onion and carrots in olive oil, until softened, but not brown.
  2. Add curry powder - cook another minute.
  3. Add the can of chicken broth and cayenne pepper - bring to boil. reduce heat - cook 5 minutes.
  4. Add the orange juice - and Scoop out potatoes from skins and mash slightly.add to pot. (If you have left-over baked sweet potatoes that is great.)

    Heat through.
  5. Use an immersion blender or a blender to puree to desired consistency. Season to taste, if you need salt/pepper.

    Optional: Serve and top each bowl with yogurt and/or croutons - green onions.
