Roasted Sweet Potato and Ginger Soup
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
- Lightly brush or spray the sweet potatoes, onion slices and ginger on all sides with oil. Season the vegetables with salt and pepper to taste. Roast on top rack of oven heat until the vegetables are browned, about 25 minutes, turning once halfway through roasting time.
- Finely chop the ginger. Place the sweet potatoes, onions and ginger in a large saucepan. Add the chicken stock, allspice and cayenne. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Puree the soup in a food processor or blender (in 2 batches if necessary). Return the soup to the pan. Add the half-and-half, parsley and lime juice. Taste and season with more salt and pepper, if necessary.
- Serve warm.
