Manley and I have pretty much changed the way we plan our meals. Lately we have been going to the farmer's market once a week, buying whatever is available, and then going home and planning our meals for the week. I can't even explain what a great experience it has been...I'm a perfectionist with food, so planning meals can be extremely stressful for me. This way, we let nature dictate what we're eating...the way it should be. And the benefits of being more closely connected to your food source...just endless.
So we are eating a lot of sweet potatoes lately! And this soup is unbeleivable and simple so I wanted to share!
Cook 5-6 large sweet potatoes. Scoop sweet potato meat of each potato and place in food processor. Turn into puree; add a few cups chicken stock and plain yogurt to mixture. (You can really play around with it...depending on how thin/creamy you want your soup.)
Saute one chopped onion in a few tablespoons butter until clear. Add sweet potato mix and simmer for about 20 minutes.
Stir in a shot glass of sherry and a teaspoon of nutmeg and simmer for another 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if desired (you really don't need to...the flavor is so intense) and serve warm!
Have a great weekend everyone!
