This is a great fall style, sweet and holiday inspired soup that can be served with a dollop of marshmallow creme, honey sweetened yogurt or even mandarian oranges. This recipe serves 4-6.
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter, unsalted
  • 5 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2"x2" pieces
  • 1 large Baking Potato, peeled and chopped into 2"x2" (to help with thickness)
  • 5 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 3 cups of heavy creme
  • a sprig of thyme
  • a few bay leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste

  2. Heat butter in large pot, add sweet potatoes, then chicken stock and herbs.
  3. Boil potatoes on medium high heat until soft - about 30 minutes.
