Gingered Yam Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Parsley

Use sweet potatoes if desired, but I think yams are best. Ginger must be fresh, not powdered.

The ginger was almost imperceptible once the soup was cooked; what we really noticed was the lime juice, very pleasant. DH liked the sliced almonds; next time I'm going to grate them fine before garnishing, because I think the nut texture clashes with the smoothness of the soup. Thanks for submitting...
