Very Low Fat Cream of Sweet Potato Soup in the Crock Pot

READY IN: 5hrs 10mins
Recipe by ladypit

I found this recipe online in a compilation of crock pot recipes. I have tweaked it heavily to my own dietary needs. This is a lovely creamy soup, but not one with a lot of zing. This would be best for someone looking for subtle flavors. It is almost like mashed sweet potatoes. I tried it with a dollop of fat free sour cream but I did not like that as much as leaving it alone. If you don't have enough broth just make up the difference with water. It worked fine.

Yum Yum! I did as most other reviewers suggested and played with this a bit. I used 5 sweet potatoes, 1 onion, 1 apple, 1 can of condensed chicken stock and topped up with water. once it all cooked, I removed a lot of liquid (I was worried it would be too runny, and always easier to add liquid back in). I added it back until I got the consistency I liked (I also added cream to taste/consistency). And a nice big sprinkle of all spice. It was a huge hit at our Thanksgiving lunch. My almost 1 yr old daughter loved it too!

  2. Put the sweet potatoes and broth into a food processor (or use an immersion blender) and blend until smooth.
  3. Put them back into the crock pot.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours (I left mine 3.5 and it was fine).
