It’s Tuesday…so time for another tasty recipe!

I adapted this recipe for sweet potato soup from Martha Stewart’s recipe for Smoky Sweet-Potato Soup.  It’s relatively rich without adding cream or butter so it’s waist-line friendly too.

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 green apple, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 celery stalk, sliced
2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
6 cups chicken broth
red chili flakes, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste

1.  Heat oil in large pot over medium heat.  Cook garlic and onion until soft.

2.  Add apple, celery and red chili flakes (as much or little as you want).  Cook for 3 minutes.

3.  Add sweet potatoes and chicken broth.  Simmer until sweet potatoes are tender (15-20 minutes).

4.  Working in batches, transfer soup to blender and puree (or use immersion blender).

5.  Season with salt and pepper.  Garnish with sunflower seeds or sour cream, if desired.


I made this soup a few days ago and since I was out of apples, I used two celery sticks instead…worked just fine!  I haven’t tried freezing it, but it would probably work well.  Just reheat on the stove or in a crock pot!
