Quick Sweet Potato Bisque

Recipe by  

"This is a great way to use sweet potatoes and other staples you have laying around. Cooking for a Crohn's husband, we're always trying to find ways to cook vegetables down so he can still enjoy them. If necessary, thin with additional milk. Serve hot with a sprinkling of pepitas, if desired."

Directions

  1. Combine milk, sweet potatoes, apples, onion, carrots, celery, garlic, salt, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and peppercorns in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are soft, 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Pour soup into a food processor or blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.

First off, I loved the ease of cooking everything together in one pot all at once. Just throw it all in and let simmer. Since milk is being used, it can be difficult finding a perfect temp that is high enough for the milk to simmer and veggies to cook, but not cause the pot to boil over. Milk has a tendency to do that, so I had to keep a constant eye on the pot. The flavor was ok (I made it exactly as written) and it can easily be tweaked. I felt the soup was missing something though. It definitely needed more salt to bring out the flavors, as it was a little bland as written. I think maybe half the amount of apple would have been enough, since this was a little on the sweet side. That is just personal preference though. I love spicy foods, but would have preferred a little less cayenne in this soup. For extra flavor, I'm thinking maybe half milk/half vegetable broth might be tasty, or even using low-fat coconut milk.
