recipe: recipe: sweet potato soup

lori316January 15, 2005

Somebody asked that I post this. When I first made this soup, I thought it was just ok. My husband and everybody else who tried it thought it was great. Then I tried it the next day and I liked it too and I'm making it again this weekend. I guess it just needed that magic flavor gainer that some foods get overnight in the fridge ;). Easy recipe, and the cashews add something "different".

4 Sweet Potatoes

8 Cups water

1/3 Cup of butter

1/2 cup tomato sauce

2 tbs heavy cream

2 tsp salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

dash thyme

1 cup cashews, split in half

1) Preheat oven to 375, bake potatoes 55 minutes. Cool, peel, & mash until almost smooth.

2) Pour into large saucepan, add remaining ingredients, stir.

3) Bring to boil, reduce heat, simmer 50-60 minutes. Cashews should be soft.

I served sweet potato soup, as a started, for Christmas dinner. I didn't make it, bought it from our new Fresh Market and it was very good.

Ooops, I just realized I put this in the wrong spot. Should have been the regular RE, not desserts. Well, it's sweet, so...

The one I served was not spicey sweet, but savory. I added a dollop of sour cream for a topping.
