Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

This ultra tasty potato soup works well with stuffing, a turkey dinner, or simply eat it on it’s own.

The color is gorgeous, the texture velvety-smooth. It’s rich even though it only has a kiss of cream. And I love the smoky-spicy chipotle powder with sweet potato.

You could finish this soup with a sprinkling of candied walnuts or pecans, melted bleu cheese topped crostini, drizzle of chili oil, or simply a good vinegar.

  1. A lovely post! Helped to put me a positive mindset here on Long Island. Better days ahead, including the cherished ritual of Thanksgiving.

  2. I would like to try duck – I noticed them in the grocery store. I am intimidated, having never roasted one before or even tasted duck. I looked up recipes and just like chicken it seems everyone has their own ideas about roasting duck. Wish me luck!

    Oh, and chipotle pepper sounds genius with sweet potato. It is a little too sweet for me, but I grow lots in the garden and I need to find some way to eat them.
