SWEET POTATO SOUP
I went shopping at Super Walmart yesterday, and I bought two huge sweet potatoes weighing 3 pounds altogether! Yes I'm make SWEET POTATO SOUP again today after work. I LOVE that soup with the "trinity" of veggies as the flavor base! My son Jesse and I don't eat enough veggies and this is one way I manage to get some into our bellies. Here's the recipe! SWEET POTATO SOUP 2-3 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed 1". 1 Medium or large Onion chopped small 2-3 large Carrots chopped small 2-3 Stalks of Celery chopped small 2-3 Tb Canola Oil or Butter if you prefer 2-3 cans of Chicken Broth, according to how thick you like it. OR use Chicken Base and 6 to 7-8 Cups of water 1 clove of Garlic minced (I forgot to add this) 2 Chicken Bouillon Cubes (optional) Not necessary if using chicken base which is salty. 1/2- 3/4 tsp Mrs. Dash Original Salt and Pepper. Saute the onion, celery, carrots until softened, about 5-10 minutes. Then pour into to a large pot and add the cubed sweet potatoes, chicken broth (or) chicken base and water and seasonings. Let simmer for 30 or until the veggies are tender. Then let cool and puree all the veggies in some broth and stir into remaining broth. Remember make this recipe your own.. experiment. Add or take away stuff.
