Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

0
Julie Julie 0

"A creamy fall soup that's easy to make any time of year. The earthiness of the sweet potato is balanced with tart apples, spicy ginger, and touch of zesty lime. If desired, garnish each serving with a dollop of sour cream, some chopped cilantro, and a few sweet, spicy nuts. A Thanksgiving favorite that's a kid favorite year-round. Freezes well!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Granny Smith or McIntosh apples work well; can also substitute pears if you have them on hand. The amount of salt you need will depend on how salty your chicken broth is. This is an easy recipe to make vegetarian, too; just substitute the chicken broth for vegetable or mushroom broth.
