Sweet Potato Soup

I absolutely love the combination of chilly autumn weather and hot soups. The other day, after reading this post on A Beautiful Mess, I decided I wanted my own sweet potato soup - but not exactly like Emma's. I wasn't feeling quite so daring that afternoon. So, after spending a few minutes looking up recipes online, here's how I made mine.

Sweet potato soup.
1 serving.

  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 of an onion
  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 1 scoop almond butter
  • sprinkle of pepper
  • dash of ginger
  • two dashes of cinnamon
  • brown sugar and/or cream for topping

First. Chop up the garlic and onion and let it simmer in a pot with the butter.
Second. Chop up the sweet potato. 
Third. When the onions are soft, add the rest of the ingredients (except brown sugar and cream) to the pot and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft. 
Fourth. When the sweet potatoes are soft, blend your soup to the desired consistency. If it's too thick for you, add more broth. 
Fifth. Dish out your soup, add some brown sugar (and maybe cream), and enjoy!
