DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large, deep sauté pan until shimmering.
  • Add sweet potatoes, then onion; sauté, stirring very little at first, then more frequently, until vegetables start to turn golden brown, 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and add butter, sugar and garlic; continue cooking until all vegetables are a rich spotty caramel color, about 10 minutes longer.
  • Add ginger, nutmeg and cayenne pepper; continue to sauté until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute longer.
  • Add broth; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Using an immersion blender or traditional blender, puree until very smooth, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Return to pan (or a soup pot); add enough half-and-half so the mixture is souplike, yet thick enough to float garnish. Taste, and add salt and pepper if needed. Heat through, ladle into bowls, garnish and serve.
