I am writing this recipe before I have good pictures in hand cause I swear to you this is the best this that has happened to sweet potato all year!
If you can get your hands on the orange kind of sweet potato then I will very highly(maybe a little vehemently) recommend you to make this soup.Its a creamy butter soup which on a rainy cold day will be the perfect companion for you and your kids! I say that because I did share a non salty version of this soup with my 8 month old baby.
You can make this soup vegan and whole30 complaint by replacing the milk with coconut milk and omitting the butter.
About the produce-
The sweet potato that you usually get in India are the pink extremely fibrous ones.Those would not work for this recipe.You will have to look for the softer orange kinds to make this soup.
The sage is from my garden but feel free to use dried sage or in a pinch any other kind of herb.
Serves: 2 cups
- 1 Large Sweet Potato-the Orange kind
