Harvest Sweet Potato Soup

Harvest Sweet Potato Soup

"I always double this recipe whenever I prepare it, since we love leftovers. This is the easiest soup I've ever made. Our 10-month-old daughter can really dig in, since this thick nutritious mixture clings to her spoon. We prefer it warm, but it can also be served chilled. -Gayle Becker, Mt. Clemens, Michigan"

This is delicious. Mine was quite thick, more like baby food, but I'm sure that was because my sweet potatoes were generous in size. I ended up using almost 6 cups of chicken broth to get it t...

I love this recipe and have made it many times, the only change I make is that I leave out the oil to save on fat. Even my kids like it!

Yum! This is one of my favorite soup recipes! It is delicious just as written; I used olive oil and cut the amount down to about a tsp. with delicious results. Next time I make it I will try it ...

Excellent! I used a package of refrigerated mashed sweet potatoes and made the prep work super easy!
