I got this recipe from my neighbor. I don't think she would mind if I share it since she had put in in my son's middle school fundraiser cookbook. It is very easy to make and super tasty. It is a good way for me to use sweet potatoes that I can enjoy. I don't particularly like sweet potatoes even though I know how much healthier they are than white potatoes. That subject comes up a lot on this blog.
Sweet Potato Bisque
This soup is simple, rich and easy to make.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 cup celery (chopped)
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a 4 quart saucepan. Add the onions and celery. Saute for 10 minutes. Add the diced sweet potato and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium, cover and cook for 25 minutes until the potatoes are very tender. Puree the potatoes in a blender (in small batches) or with a hand-held immersion blender. Stir in the milk. Season to taste with the salt and pepper. Reheat and serve.
