Ingredients Nutrition


  1. grease a baking sheet. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  3. (I mixed everything together in a ziploc bag then put on baking sheet).

  5. Heat extra oil in a large pot or dutch oven over med-high heat.

  8. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes until fragrant.
  9. Add roasted yams and broth and stir. Process in a blender in 3 to 4 batches until smooth.
  10. (I used a hand held blender and pureed directly in the pot).

  12. Add cream and stir until well combined and hot. season with extra salt and pepper if desired.

Wow! Great soup. Wanted something warm for a cold november day and this hit the spot. Easy to make too. I didn't eve have whipping cream (ahh...the life of a university student) so I just used some milk and it worked out perfectly. mmmm mmmm good.

Definitely worth the time to prepare! It's certainly not hard to make..... just takes a while to roast the yams. Totally worth it, though. I added a little extra cumin, otherwise I followed the recipe. It smells just as fabulous as it tastes. I garnished with fresh cilantro....Mmmmmm! Next time I roast yams, I'll roast extra just to make this soup. Thanx for a great soup!
