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!

Delicious! Creamy stunning soup that has complex flavors with an Autumn appearance. I also did not finely mash the sweet potatoes. I didn't use as much celery as called for as I only had one small stalk. Made for Australia New Zealand recipe swap.
I scaled this back to use 2 sweet potatoe and followed through. I think though my sweet potatoes were on the larger side but when added to the pot I had a mix thick enough to eat with a fork so ended up adding another 1.5 cups of milk to get a soup consistency and served with Parsley and Chive Scones for a very enjoyable lunch on a chilly sunny day.
