Rich and thick. Almost a stew,it makes a great light winter meal. Uses 1 pot and 1 cutting board and a salad bowl, easy on the clean up I added a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of parsley for presentation. SIDES spinach salad whole grain rolls.

I can't award stars because I didn't finish making the soup. I couldn't get past the look of it. I added the thyme and the whole thing looked very unappetizing. As it was simmering to cook the white potato, almost all of the liquid disappeared and it was a greenish brown paste with lumps of orange and white. 10 oz doesn't seem to be nearly enough liquid and I think the amount of thyme was too much. Sorry for the bad review and that I didn't finish making it but there was no way anyone in my family would've taken a bite of it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roast the sweet potato in its jacket. I roasted mine until it was carmelized and the skin very loose.
  2. Saute onions and pressed garlic for about 3 minutes over medium high heat.
  3. add potato and saute for another 3 minutes.
  4. add broth (I used homemade stock so I added a chicken cube for extra umph), spices, and sweet potato
  5. simmer until potatoes are soft.
  6. meanwhile assemble the salad ingredients (do not add dressing until served.
  7. The whole grain rolls can be wrapped in tinfoil and warmed in the oven.
  8. Remove from burner, mash soup with potato masher
  9. add half and half.
  10. reheat but not to a boil.
  11. Serve soup in soup bowls with a dollop of sour cream or yoghurt in the middle and a sprig of parsley ( if you give the soup a quick swirl with a spoon it gives a nice decorative effect) Salad can be served out of a salad bowl or on side plates with warmed rolls.
