A chunky soup of sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, beans, tomatoes, onions and garlic. Add some pasta if you are serving this for dinner. If you are lucky enough to have leftovers, it's great the next day!
A good start. I'd recommend adding cannelini beans and pasta for the full experience. I also substituted some apple cider for some of the liquid - a nice touch in the fall. - 20 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow! I made this because we are doing an Iron Chef type competition at work and the ingredient was sweet potato. I thought this was interesting. I was not expecting it to be so good! I think I just might win! I did use chicken broth instead of vegetable, and I also added some cider as another reviewer suggested and cannelloni beans. I was planning on adding pasta, but, I don''t think it needs it! This will wind up in my recipe collection as something I will make regularly. As a dessert I made the sweet potato pound cake from this site, I fear that gem won't make it out of the house.. At least I got to try this one out without anyone noticing something missing. UPDATE I got second place in my contest at work to sweet potato fries with dipping sauces, I wanted a recount! People that like sweet potato, and people that don't like soup alike asked for the recipe! - 19 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thsi was really wonderful! When I placed in front of my kids they thought they were going to hate it--but they loved it! My husband said, "Honey, you can make this anytime you want!" - 08 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
