Sweet Potato Soup



Nothing is more comforting than a warm bowl of soup on a cold, snowy, wintry night. Soups are not only very quick and easy to put together, but are also very healthy and satisfying.

Ingredients:(Serves 2)
3 tbsp. olive oil,
4 tbsp. onion, chopped,
2 C sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed,
2 C vegetable stock,
1/2 tsp garlic paste,
salt and pepper, to taste.

Method:

Heat oil, add onions, let them fry for a min . Add sweet potatoes, garlic paste and saute. Season it with salt and pepper. Add vegetable stock let it all cook for a few mins. until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, let it cool slightly and puree it in a blender or food processor.

Serve hot or at room temperature with toasted baguette.

This is the most basic recipe, you can definitely spice it up, flavor your soup with chicken stock, beef stock, curry powder, coriander powder, roasted fennel powder, tandoori masala, possibilities are endless as this soup is very versatile. Fresh mint also adds a wonderful flavor.

I like my soups to be thick , it just makes it easy to feed my 1 yr old, but you can make it less thick by adding more broth/stock.

This soup is being sent to Monthly Mingle event hosted this month by Sunshine Mom.
