I just so happened to have plain yogurt and a large sweet potato that I wanted to use up. I cut the recipe in half and was pleasantly surprised. This is a very nice soup. I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.

MUST ADD CINNAMON!!! I made it as written and it was just "ok", hence the 3 stars. My husband tried it but wouldn't eat more than one bite. I then added cinnamon to it and THEN it was delish! The cinnamon TOTALLY makes it. I rate it 5 stars with this simple addition. It makes it taste more like a pumpkin soup. Good stuff!

my man hates sweet potatoes (and soup) but he somehow loved this! i had sweet potatoes but no yogurt, so i used sour cream instead (also left out the parsley/cilantro because i didn't have it). while it wasn't as healthy, it was SO delicious! i'd like to try it with yogurt and cilantro someday. i'm still rating this even though i used a substitution because this soup had such a delicious flavor and barely any ratings. i'd never had sweet potato soup before, but i'm glad i tried this! YUM!

Love love love this soup. Easy to make and my whole family loved it. Even pleased my very picky father. My batch came out a little bitter, but I just added a little butter.

This was such a good recipe. However I substituted the onion with roasted red peppers (more florvorful and creamy) and yogurt with coconut cream. Just a healthier twist that made it taste heaps better too.f

The taste was great, but mine was super brothy. Isn't it supposed to be pretty thick? Anyone else have this issue?

I like it but it came out pretty frothy. I guess don't over puree it!

I was looking for an accompaniment to my meal as was amazed I had everything on hand. I followed recipe and ingredients as listed but felt the end result was overpowered by the cumin. I added cinnamon as suggested by another user and it was the perfect balance to the cumin. Thanks for a yummy recipe!
