"I just made this recipe and then had two servings...it is delicious! I did not add the spices. I read the one review who said cinnamon and nutmeg went well, so I was going to add those spices. But after tasting how good it was without, I just let it be. I did add extra garlic, and I put salt and pepper on the sweet potatoes and onions as they roasted. I also strained my garlic mixture as my garlic was a little on the old side and it had some hard spots on it. Anyhow, I highly recommend this soup!"

"Love the recipe. I roasted the sweet potatoes and garlic, but cooked the onions in a large skillet, adding the dried thyme, salt and pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes. When the sweet potatoes were done I added them to the onion mixture with the chicken broth. Great idea for sweet potatoes. Yummy soup!"

"I bake the sweet potatoes whole in the oven instead of cutting everything up. It takes longer to bak, but it's easier to me."

"It was easy to make, but I'm not too much of a fan of the parsley and thyme - I think next time I may try making it with cinnamon and nutmeg instead and see if I like it better."
