Take To the Table Tuesday: Sister’s Sweet Potato (and Yam) Soup

by Mindy Lockard on November 15, 2011

For my nephew’s birthday my sister made the most amazing potato soup that she adapted from this Better Homes and Garden recipe. I have been thinking about this soup since she made it. And I’m not just saying that because she is my sister. I apologize in advance for the mental distraction this soup might cause you–now and again after you’ve made it. Yes, yes, my friends… it’s that good. photo-34 Serves 8 What you need: 2 lb. sweet potatoes 2 lb yams 7 green onions, chopped 28-oz. can chicken broth 1 cup whipping cream 1 cup coconut milk 2 tsp spicy red curry (or just curry if you don’t care for a little kick)

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Scrub potatoes and pierce with a knife. Cook potatoes for 10 minutes or until tender, turning once halfway through cooking. Half potatoes (wear an oven mit as these babies are very hot) scoop flesh into a bowl.
  • Depending on size of your food processor, process potatoes, onions and 14 ounces of chicken broth in batches. Process until smooth.
  • Transfer potatoes to a large saucepan. Add remaining broth, cream and coconut milk.
  • Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Stir in 3/4 teaspoon of the curry powder and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  • Top with Curry Cheese Crisps and sour cream.

Better Homes and Garden’s Curry Cheese Crisps What you need 3/4 tsp. curry powder Parchment paper 5oz. white cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup) Paprika (optional) Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl toss together the cheese and curry powder. Evenly divide in 8 mounds, 2 inches apart, on baking sheet; flatten mounds slightly. Bake 4 to 5 minutes, until melted and beginning to brown. Cool slightly. Remove from baking sheet with a metal spatula. Sprinkle with paprika. Enjoy!
