Holiday Eats & Treats: Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Sweet potato soup is one of my favorite  healthy “treats” to make during the holiday season.

It’s sweet. It’s seasonal. And a bowlful or mugful of this will really hit the spot on the coldest of December days.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup chicken stock ( add more if need to thin it out)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp tbsp maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and chop sweet potatoes into cubes and place them on a pan lined with aluminum foil. Drizzle a little olive oil on top. Place them in the oven and roast them for 15 minutes. Check and make sure you can put a fork through them with ease, and, if so, they are done.
  3. Pull potatoes out of the oven, put them in a blender or a food processor and puree. As you are pureeing the potatoes, slowly pour in the chicken stock.
  4. Once the potatoes are smooth and to the consistency you like, add them to a pot and place on the stove. Mix in cream, nutmeg, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Allow to simmer for a while, letting the sweet aromas fill the house and all of the flavors in the pot combine.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
