Cream of Sweet Potato Soup
December 27, 2010

I had a hard time with this soup. I liked it and I didn't like it, how about that for wishy washy! The soup was exactly what it was supposed to be, but I didn't love the sweetness of the sweet potato in the soup. "What exactly were you expecting", you ask? "When you make sweet potato soup", you say, "it is supposed to taste like sweet potatoes". Okay, so it doesn't make sense, but I still didn't love it. The soup had a nice texture and good sweet flavor, but for me to really like it, it would have needed to get a little more savory. The addition of sauteed onion or more chicken flavor might have saved it for me, or maybe adding one regular potato to mellow it out, but it was just too "sweet potatoey". I think I will stick to less assertive vegetables for my soups, like butternut squash.
