Recipe of the Week: L.M.’s Sweet Potato Soup

Reader L.M. kindly sent us her Sweet Potato Soup recipe, one of her fall favorites.

  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
  1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high.
  2. Add onion and carrots, and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute.
  4. Add sweet potatoes, yellow potatoes, salt, black pepper, cumin, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper, and cook, stirring, 1 minute.
  5. Add stock; bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until potatoes are very tender, about 30 minutes.
  7. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high.
  8. Add pecans, and cook, stirring often, until toasted, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
  9. Transfer potato mixture, in batches, to a blender. Process in blender until smooth. (Or you may process the soup in your Dutch oven, with an immersion blender.)


Top each serving bowl with 1 tablespoon of yogurt, 2 tablespoons of chopped pecans, and 1/2 tablespoon of parsley.


Can be stored in your refrigerator for up to three days and either re-heated (once), or individual bowls can be he-heated in your microwave oven.
