SO Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

Sweet Potato and Apple Soup


½  Cup chopped onion

4  Cups peeled chopped sweet potatoes (yams)

2  Cups peeled chopped baking apples

2  Cups fat-free low-sodium chicken broth

½  Teaspoon ground ginger

½  Teaspoon ground curry

1  Tablespoon honey

1  Cup fat-free milk

1/3  Cup chopped walnuts, toasted


1. In a nonstick saucepot coated with nonstick cooking spray, sauté the onions over medium heat until tender. Add the sweet potatoes, apples, broth, ginger, curry, and honey.

2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the potatoes are tender, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

3. Return the soup to the pot and stir in the milk until blended. Sprinkle with toasted walnuts to serve.

Terrific Tidbit: Canned sweet potatoes may be used and just add when you place mixture in the food processor.
