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
