Sweet Potato Bisque
Reviews:
October 11, 2005

I had a sweet potato bisque when I was back in college that reminded me a lot of pumpkin pie -- I was hoping that this recipe might get me something similar. I made a few changes to start -- I upped the number of sweet potatoes to 4, and regular potatoes to about 2.5. I used regular baking potatoes, but I think Yukons might work better next time. Along with the onions and garlic, I sauteed about a 1/3 cup carrots. I decreased the water to 6 cups, and made up the difference with chicken stock. After the spices were added, I also added about 3/4 cup brown sugar (slightly too much), about 1 generous tablespoon cinnamon, and a full pint of lowfat buttermilk. While the spices do give this dish a zing, the sweet potato flavor is sorely lacking. I will likely up the number of sweet potatoes next time to 5 or 6, and definitely cut back on the amount of regular potatoes, nutmeg and thyme as they were a bit overpowering.
