Shortcuts Make for Easy Preparation

This delicious Cream of Sweet Potato Soup is so easy to make with the help of a couple of shortcuts. The first shortcut is to use the microwave to cook the sweet potatoes. The second shortcut is to use a handheld emersion blend to puree the soup.

I love making creamy soups and used to rely on my food processer. I finally got around to getting the emersion blender, a couple of years ago, and am so glad that I did. It’s so easy to use and clean. It saves so much time and I love that I don’t have an extra multi-part appliance to wash.

This soup has wonderful balance. Brown sugar gives it a touch of sweetness. Nutmeg and cayenne provide just the right amount of spice and a hint of heat.

A dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of green onions on top give it a bit of tang and crunch.

Great as a Main Dish or First Course

This Cream of Sweet Potato Soup is wonderful as a main dish for dinner. I like to serve it with a green salad and crusty bread.

This pretty soup also makes an elegant first course for a dinner party. It would also add brightness to a buffet for a holiday open house or potluck.

  1. Mmmmm made this soup tonight and it was tasty!! I had a couple of leftover sweet potatoes, regular-sized, so I cut the recipe in half which made 2 bowls. Instead of topping with sour cream I topped with parm cheese. It was SOO yummy and EASY, especially with microwaving the potatoes. I left out the cayenne as my toddler was eating it as well. This soup reminds me of butternut, so creamy and came together in no time at all!! Thank you, will definitely be making again!!

  2. Joy – I love my immersion blender and this is an easy, delicious-looking soup recipe – what a great combination. Thanks for stopping by our Happy Holidays Link Party – be sure to join us again this week (beginning on Saturday at 7 pm ET) and every week through the holidays.

  3. Oh yes! This is a soup I could definitely make right now. I love squash and potato soup together and I think a sweet potato soup would be delish!
