Ingredients50 m servings 221
- Heat olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat; cook and stir shallots in the hot oil until soft, about 3 minutes. Stir apples, ginger, zest from 1 lime, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper into the pot. Reserve lime juice. Cook and stir mixture until apples are very soft, about 15 minutes.
- Pour chicken broth into pot; add sweet potatoes and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Stir reserved lime juice into soup. Garnish with lime wedges to serve.
- Cook's Note:
- Granny Smith or McIntosh apples work well; can also substitute pears if you have them on hand. The amount of salt you need will depend on how salty your chicken broth is. This is an easy recipe to make vegetarian, too; just substitute the chicken broth for vegetable or mushroom broth.
