Hey Jude, this is DELIGHTFUL! I had several cups of sweet potatoes leftover from Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes & Cranberries With Toasted Pecans and they were already seasoned. I followed your recipe & added all the ingredients except the cinnamon. I also subbed a yellow onion for the leek. This is amazing! I'll serve it up with some leftover Christmas ham and we're good to go! Thanks you for truly delicious soup Jude! YUM!
