Sweet Potato Curry Soup

Sweet Potato Curry Soup

Sweet Potato Curry Soup (pictured here with a drizzle of olive oil and za’atar spice)

This soup was served with a huge sigh of relief. This soup is easy on the eyes (if I may say so myself) but the bigger success was my managing to correctly use the blender! Last time I attempted this feat, I found myself scrubbing orange soup off the walls, windows, vents, my dogs, etc.…it wasn’t pretty (my shame is well documented on twitter).

So here we are, take 2. I like challenging the smooth starchiness of the potato with some curry and cayenne; however, the spices can be adjusted to your liking. When serving, I highly recommend a drizzle of olive oil, crumble of feta cheese, or a sprinkling of za’atar spice (or all three!) for a tasting topping. Tasty and thermos-ready for those chilly January days.
