Yum Alert: Sweet Potato Chipotle Soup
I know it’s not Tuesday Soup Day, but this soup is so good I couldn’t resist. The best part is that you can easily make it at home. We got the recipe from Dishes, one of my favorite places to eat in Midtown New York. Trust me, you’re going to love it!
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cups yellow onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
8-9 medium (3 pounds) sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely diced
1⁄2 cup half and half, cream or milk
2 tablespoons jarred chipotle peppers, pureed
Salt to taste
In a large pot, over medium heat, sauté the onions and garlic in the butter until soft and lightly golden. Add potatoes. Add just enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer about 25 to 30 minutes, or until potatoes begin to fall apart. Add cream, spices, and pureed chipotle to the pot. Blend with an immersion handheld blender, or transfer to a standing blender. Serve warm. Makes 8-10 servings.
