Simple Sweet Potato Soup

This delicious soup has only 6 ingredients. It was given to me by my boyfriend’s mom who adapted it from another recipe. It can be as thick or thin as you like, and I like it quite thick. To dress it up when serving, drizzle some cream on top and float a lime twist or slice of lime on top. Delicious hot or cold.

Original recipe makes 8 servings


6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup water, or as needed
1 lime, juiced
2 cups milk or cream, or as needed

  2. Puree potatoes and lime juice in a food processor, or with a hand blender until smooth. Return soup to saucepan and stir in milk or cream as desired; heat until warmed through.
