Tomato Sweet Potato Bisque

Recipe by Linky
READY IN: 1hr 35mins




  • Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the oil and heat until just hot. Add the carrot, celery, onion, and ½ teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions just turn translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the jalapeno, garlic, thyme, and basil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are nice and brown, about 7 minutes.
  • Stir in the tomatoes with their juices, then stir in the stock and sweet potato.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a steady simmer. Simmer until the sweet potato is very, very tender, about 1 hour. The sweet potatoes should be soft enough to mash easily with the back of a spoon.
  • Remove and discard the thyme sprigs.
  • Using an immersion blender or stand blender (working in batches if necessary), puree until silky smooth.
  • Reheat the soup over low heat.
  • Stir in the cream.
  • For a thinner soup, stir in more stock.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot.
