Sweet-Potato Soup With Nutmeg and Maple Syrup

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by A la Carte

This is a great recipe - I saw it on foodtv a couple of years ago... Now I use it in my catering and sell it to a couple of coffeeshops. The peeps seem to love it! (I find it too sweet for my tastes, so I only use 1 tbsp maple syrup when I cook it for us, and I use only half of the half and half. It's still really good when you cut down the cream.)
