This easy-to-prepare yet oh-so-elegant sweet potato cream soup is a favorite at my house. The kids love it because it has a slightly sweet taste, and it's my husband's favorite soup. Serve warm with buttery garlic bread and a crisp green salad. You can also serve cold with cucumber or watercress sandwiches.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until soft, about 1 1/2 hours. (You can also use a microwave.) Remove from the oven and let cool slightly.

  • Peel sweet potatoes and place flesh in a blender. Purée in batches with chicken broth, using enough broth so it blends smoothly. Transfer puréed mixture to a large saucepan.

  • Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in sugar, salt, nutmeg, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cream.
