What! sweet potato soup! Are you out of your mind?
Created this one just tonight. It came out great.
2 sweet potatoes, peeled (about the size of a large baking potato)
1 cup water
1/2 yellow onion, peeled
1 tbs. salted butter
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
3 dashes ground cumin
3 dashes ground coriander
1/4 tsp. allspice
Dice the sweet potato and place in a 3 quart sauce pan with the water. Bring to a boil and turn down heat to simmer. Cover. Slice the onion in half, and then each half into quarters. Add to the pot. Ad the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the sweet potato and onion slices are tender. Pout the soup into a tall, slender container, large eonugh to hold the soup and then some. Blend with a stick blender until creamy smooth. Return to the pan and taste it. Add more seasonings to taste.
This stuff came out similar to a curried winter squash soup, but with more emphasis on the cummin and coriander. It didn't taste like sweet potatoes at all, not that there is anything wrong with sweet spuds.
It was warm, creamy smooth, and very satisfying, even without a meat course. I'll be making this soup again.
