Sweet Potato Soup (gf,df)


We are trying to use up the food in our fridge,
so I thought I'd whip up a batch of sweet potato soup.
The weather has been cooperating just enough,
so that a bowl of soup really hits the spot.

A handful of ingredients makes this dish 
a snap to put together in less than 30 minutes.
Sauteing the onions really brings out their sweetness.
If you don't care for sweet potatoes,
this method for soup making can be used with
white potatoes, butternut squash, or carrots,
or any combination of your favorite veg.





Sweet Potato Soup

1/2 yellow onion, diced
olive oil
3 sweet potatoes, chopped
salt
cinnamon (optional)
water or bone broth


In a medium pot, sautee onion in olive oil
until translucent (5-7 minutes).
Add sweet potatoes and cook until almost tender
(8 minutes).
Add seasonings and fill pot 3/4 full with water
or a combination of water and bone broth.
Bring to the boil,
then turn down to low heat.
Simmer with lid on about 10 minutes.
Use an immersion blender or food processor
to blend until smooth.
Enjoy!
