Sa-weet Potato Soup

Isn't she lovely?

 

Damn baby, it’s cold outside! Yes, the winter chill has certainly hit the neighborhood. It’s just about that time to find a snuggle buddy and make some soup. Here’s an excellent way to slurp your vegetables and fill your tummy with love.

*A blender or food processor is needed for this recipe.

Serves 4-5 people. (Saves well in fridge for 3-4 days.)

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 6-7 cups of sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed (look for already prepared in veg section at Whole Foods)
  • 5-6 cups of chicken or vegetable stock (amount depends on how thick you prefer your soup.)
  • Optional: Fresh thyme, bundled and tied
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Garnish: Dollop of unsweetened Greek yogurt. Try Fage Total 0%

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add chopped onion, carrot and celery to melted butter. Stir and sauté until creamy and translucent (about 5 min.)
  3. Add cubed sweet potatoes, bundled thyme and nutmeg.
  4. Pour chicken stock over ingredients until completely covered and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low and cover pot. Simmer about 30 minutes or until all veggies are tender. (Use a fork to check.)
  6. Remove bundled thyme, discard.
  7. Working in batches, puree soup in blender until smooth. (Think baby food consistency!) Return to pot.
  8. Stir in any remaining stock to reach desired consistency.
