recipe: recipe: sweet potato soup

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.
