My dear SO brought home 30 lbs. of sweet potatoes,YES I said 30 lbs. :)and had to figure out what to do with them. So, Using what I had on hand, this soup was created out of desperation and necessity.And I have to say it was tasty enough for my SO to eat two bowls.( he's picky :) )Please feel free to adjust the seasonings according to your own personal tastes.As with almost any soup the longer you let simmer the better.
