Harvest Sweet Potato Soup Recipe



This is my Sweet potato soup recipe.

The original is from Taste Of Home magazine, but I have altered it slightly:

1. Instead of 3 cups chicken broth I use 5. It makes it less fibrous and more soupy once you blend everything together.
2. I use more onion.
3. I use more basil.
4. I don't use the bay leaves.
5. Sometimes I will add 1/2 Cup of half-and-half to the soup once blended to make it a bit creamier. Today is one of those times.

Paula says whenever you get a new recipe, make it the way its written the first time and then after that, add a little something to it or do your own variation.
I think thats a good train of thought. It makes it your own.

That's usually how I end up doing it. I think it aggravates the people I know who always wonder why I don't do 'just like the recipe says'.

I figure, hey, if I'm gonna be the one eatin' it, I'm gonna make it GOOD.

excellent. though the blending part does sound like a major de-motivating pain.

if I do get up the gumption to try it, I like your half and half idea...but I never buy the stuff--any thoughts on what I could add instead? just plain milk?

Sure. Just plain milk is fine.

I only have 1/2&1/2 once a year (at Thanksgiving) and so I figure I'll use it while I've got it.

OMG - Thank you so very much for putting the Harvest Sweet Potato Soup on line!!! My husband threw out all of my Taste of Home Recipe Books and I have been searching for weeks for that recipe. I need it so that my daughter who is having Bariatric Surgery can have a good 1/4 cup of that wonderful soup. Carole
