DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and saute the onions until translucent, stirring every once in a while.
  • Add the celery and ginger. Cook until the onions brown.
  • Add the sweet potatoes, water, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Bring to a rapid boil.
  • Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer 15-20 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  • Retrieve the bay leaf and toss it.
  • Puree the soup mixture with the milk and cream in a food processor (I needed to do this in two batches).
  • Reheat gently, adding more salt and pepper is desired.
  • Don't boil the soup, or it will curdle!
  • Done!
