      Very much enjoyed!! I baked my sweet potatoes ahead of time, so that when I came to make the soup, after work on a cool Monday night, it was very quickly prepared. I didn't actually mash the potato flesh, just chopped it into the soup, but it broke down and created a smoothish/chunkyish texture, which we enjoyed! I also added a bit more water, as I went. Lovely soup, enjoyed with a stick of home-baked French bread, thank you! Made for Oz/NZ swap#36

      This soup was lovely, it was so flavorful and tasty. I also didn't mash the potatoes completely, resulting in a great texture. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe that was quick and easy to make.

      When making this recipe I decided to stick with the 'creamy' part of it so did peel the sweet potatoes, but another time I'd like to try it WITH skins, & dicing the cooked potatoes very small! As I'm always saying, I love those skins! For those of us who really enjoy yams, this soup is a delight to have on the table! Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for posting!
