directions

  • Combine the stock, sweet potatoes, celery, onion, bay leaf, and tarragon in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Discard the bay leaf, puree the soup in batches in an electric blender or food processor, and return to the pot. Add the half-and-half, salt, and pepper and bring to a simmer.
  • Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped herbs if desired. Don't forget the freshly ground black pepper, and some goat cheese on top might also be a nice contrast to the sweetness of the sweet potatoes. Enjoy!

    This soup is fantastic! I chose to use yams (just my preference). I even added a dash of cayenne, as you suggested in your introduction. After pureeing, when I added the first cup of half and half, I decided to leave out the second cup of half and half because it would have been to thin for me. It really is wonderful with a dallop of sour cream. Thanx for a great soup recipe. I'll make this again.
