  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is translucent and slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Pour in chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add the sweet potato, cumin, ginger, black pepper, brown sugar, cinnamon, and red pepper flakes. Cook until flavors come together and sweet potato is soft, about 10 minutes.

  • Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth.

Cook's Note:

Use margarine instead of butter and substitute broth for stock if preferred.

Very tasty. Perhaps my sweet potato was too big but I needed to add another half cup of stock to make it the proper consistency. Read More

Soooo disappointed. Made this because I'm on the Weight Watchers Purple plan and sweet potatoes are free and most ingredients are free on this recipe. However, it was way too spicy and not a pleasing spice. It took a long time and was not worth the mess with smashing the potatoes with the immersion blender, etc. I like spices a lot. This was not a good combo. Will look for another recipe. Read More
