Creamy Sweet Potato and Veggie Soup Recipe

Creamy Sweet Potato and Veggie Soup Recipe

I tasted this delicious soup in a restaurant, and when I couldn't persuade the chef to share the recipe. I began to experiment on my own. Finally, I came up with this blend, which is very close to what I'd tasted. The secret ingredient, I think, is sweet potatoes! —Audrey Nemeth, Mount Vernon, Maine

"I love this recipe. I used it several times, since several in my family are vegetarian. I just use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Everyone loves is, whether vegetarian or not."

"This is the best soup to have on a cold winter night. It hits that spot that helps you sleep all night. I added chicken to it to make it a little more bulky and it came out GREAT!!!! Thanks Audrey, this will be served again and again in our household"
