Japanese sweet potatoes are reddish-purple on the outside and a buttery white color on the inside. I've actually seen them called Japanese yams at grocery stores, so take note! Their delicious sweetness pairs really well with parsnip. There's so much flavor from these two root vegetables that I don't add much else to the soup.

Instructions Checklist

  • Remove pan from heat. Use an immersion blender to puree until no chunks remain and soup is smooth. Pour in milk and puree to combine. Add additional milk or water, if needed, to achieve desired consistency. Return to heat to warm through, about 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired.

I think I overdid the addition of (2%) milk as it tasted a little 'thin' but the overall recipe is great and I would make it again! Read More

I love this soup. I used real chicken stock instead of bouillon cubes and used light cream instead of milk. This soup is so easy to make and very flavorful yum! Read More
