Maple sweet potato soup
- 3 sweet potatoes, washed and cubed
- 1 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup*
- 3 cups vegetable broth**
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the butter and olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the sweet potato and maple syrup. Let everything cook for 15 minutes. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the sweet potato is soft.
Remove from heat and, using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
* I found the original recipe quite sweet, so I cut down on the maple syrup. VV offers some yummy serving suggestions to complement the sweetness of the soup, you should check them out.
** I like thick soups, so I cut down on the broth.
