SUPER EASY SWEET POTATO OR YAM SOUP RECIPE
You won’t believe how tasty and easy this super healthy sweet potato or yam soup is to make.
I enjoy it with either sweet potato or yam, and definitely prefer it with fresh ginger over ground… but as Blender Babes like to say “Use what you got”! 😉
You will not be disappointed with the satisfying rich and creamy texture, minus the calories of a typical cream soup.
The perfect appetizer soup or a complete meal, cut the recipe in half for a big single serve bowl.
By using a high powered blender this recipe only takes about 8 to 10 minutes start to finish, which includes cooking the sweet potato or yam in the microwave vs baking.
