Sweet Potato Soup

No recipe image available.Some spring days forecast rainy and cool weather. This is a good tonic for that.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 medium onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
1 large celery stalk, diced
1/2 cup celery leaves, chopped
6 cups sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 bay leaves
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup milk
Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat the oil in a soup pot and add the onion, carrots, and celery.
    Sauté over low heat until the onions are translucent.
  2. Add the celery leaves and sweet potatoes. Add just enough water to
    cover all but about an inch of the vegetables. Bring mixture to a
    simmer and stir in the bay leaves, thyme, nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  3. Simmer, covered, until the potatoes and vegetables are tender.
  4. With a slotted spoon, remove half of the solid ingredients and
    transfer them to a food processor with about 1/2 cup of the cooking
    liquid. Purée and return to the pot.
  5. Add the milk until you achieve the consistency you desire. Simmer for
    another 15 minutes.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
