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.
