Simple Sweet Potato Soup

Rated as 3.86 out of 5 Stars
10

"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."

This was awful, what a waste of ingredients. The lime and ginger taste were overpowering, especially the lime.

This soup was delicious. The ginger and lime gave it a surprising kick. Add only as much milk as to your taste, then add some cracked black pepper.

It was very simple and very tasty. The only complaint I heard was that it looked like baby food. I'm sure that could be fixed with better presentation. A little garnish would help. Also, it ...

I thought this recipe really lacked flavor. I tried to spice it up by using pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon. Didn't work. I wouldn't bother with this one again.

This is a great soup. Very simple and tasty. I would add a little bit of spice though, if you don't it can come out a little bland. Spice it to your taste! Great on rainy days :)
