Basic Sweet Potato Soup

Basic. Three ingredients. 10 minutes.

It’s also nut, dairy, and gluten free. And organic, if you please.

It started this weekend when the stomach bug meant solid foods were not an option. I had some chicken broth and a couple sweet potatoes on hand.

I cut a small-medium sweet potato and baked it in the microwave on high for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, I poured about 1 cup chicken broth into my Ninja food processor and sprinkled in a healthy dose of ginger. I did not add salt because the broth was already providing 25% if my daily need.

I scooped out the sweet potato and blended in my processor for about 25 seconds. And it was done.

The soup is more like a bisque, depending on how much blending and the ratio of broth to sweet potato. When I got braver, I cooked a bigger potato and added chucks of potato after pureeing.

Perfect fall warmth on a cold day.

About Katiehttps://thoughtsong.wordpress.comI like to dabble in writing out thoughts on scripture and life events.  Music, to me, is a dear friend, the structure that organizes my thoughts, and the feelings of my heart. Most of my time, however, is spent Teaching and Homemaking (especially trying to create hygge and live as a gluten-free baker). Take all these things away and I still have my true identity: I'm a sinner saved by grace and who dearly loves the Savior who first loved her. And that's really all that matters.
