Sweet potato soup

Tonight I tried Nava Atlas's recipe, Mellow Sweet Potato Soup (p. 26). I have to say, this is really my kind of soup. It's sweet and flavorful, and a beautiful color, and half-puréed so that it's creamy and chunky at the same time. Mmm, perfect.

I followed the recipe exactly, except using soy milk in place of rice milk. This is a nice soup for fall, and especially if you like sweet potatoes, I would recommend trying this one out! Preparation was pretty simple too, and even more so since I had an extra set of hands helping me chop.

I'm afraid that's all for today... See you!
