ROASTED SWEET POTATO AND SHALLOT SOUP

Cozy up with a cup or bowl of this tasty soup for lunch, snack, appetizer, or even for breakfast. It is a healthy twist to the classic potato soup, yet more colorful and vitamin-packed. The yogurt topping could be more or less depending on whether it is a meal or a snack, adding a dose or full serving of protein.

Servings 8

Ingredients
  

  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 2 small shallots peeled and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced (or 2 tablespoons of pre-minced)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil in spritz bottle if possible
  • Freshly ground pepper and salt to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 4 cups vegetable broth low sodium, divided
  • 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt divided

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place nonstick foil on a roasting tray and spritz with olive oil.
  • Place prepared sweet potatoes, shallots, and garlic on the tray. Spritz generously with olive oil (or use about 1 tablespoon). Sprinkle with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, and turmeric. Mix well.
  • Place the tray in the oven and bake for 30–35 minutes, stirring every 5–8 minutes (be sure to keep an eye on the shallots, so they do not burn). Remove from oven and cool slightly.
  • Place 2 cups of vegetable broth in a blender. Carefully add sweet potato mixture and blend for 1–2 minutes, adding more broth until a smooth, soupy texture. If your blender has the warming option, go for it! If not, place in a soup pot with a lid, bring to a boil, lower and keep warm until serving.
  • Makes 8 1/2-cup servings. Top with 1–2 tablespoons of yogurt, or 1/4 cup if consuming as your meal. Garnish with fresh herbs.
