Healthy Humpday – Sweet Potato Soup

When you think of sweet potatoes, most people think of serving them oven-roasted in cubes, mashed, or as fries. But last weekend, we made a delicious Sweet Potato Soup found on Food Network. It was thick, creamy, and perfectly paired with a salad for a satisfying, light dinner.

Let’s make soup!

  1. In a heavy saucepot, over medium-low heat, cook the flour and butter, stirring constantly until the mixture (roux) turns a light caramel color. Add the broth and brown sugar, bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer.
  2. Stir in the potatoes and spices, bring to a simmer again, and cook for 5 minutes more.
  3. In a blender (or using a hand-held immersion blender), puree the soup.
  4. In the saucepot, add the milk, and reheat the soup. Season with salt and pepper, and if desired, smoked paprika or a dash of chipotle pepper for additional smokiness/heat.
  5. Serve in bowls and garnish, if desired with chopped green scallions.
