Another great sounding recipe from Zamouri Spices. Quatre Epices is a spice mixture containing white peppercorns, dried ginger, cloves and nutmeg.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Remove the rosemary needles from the sprigs. Mince the needles & pecans in a food processor until very fine & reserve for later.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pot then fry garlic and onions over medium heat until the onions are soft.
  3. Add the yams, cinnamon sticks, star anise, rosemary branches and the stock. Bring to a boil then reduce heat & simmer covered for 20 minutes or until the yams are soft.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and discard the cinnamon sticks, star anise, & rosemary sprigs.
  5. In a food processor, purée the soup in batches until smooth. Return the puréed soup to the pot, add the remaining spices and cream, and heat just to the boiling point.
  6. Reduce the heat to low & simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat then taste and adjust the seasonings, if necessary. If the soup is too thick, add a bit of cream or stock.
  7. To serve, garnish with the reserved rosemary and pecans.

GREAT TASTING SOUP! I did change one thing (slight change only) in that I didn't peel the yams! I did dice them quite small, though, so when they were pureed, there were still small bits of the tasty peel, which I happen to like! This big fan of the sweet potato will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Went to the Market tag]

Delicious soup! It was wonderfully creamy with a tasty mix of spices. We used (Quatre Epices En Dix Epices) for the spice mix. The rosemary-pecan topping added a nice touch. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue L
