Sweet Potato Soup (Bisque)

sweet potato soupThis is so good and pretty quick & easy once you have your potatoes cooked.

Ingredients:
3-4 cooked sweet potatoes (I baked mine and then just took the peel off or you could peel, cut & roast them as an option)
3 celery stalks, chopped
1-2 carrots, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2-4 cups chicken stock (depending how liquid you like your soup)
Sea salt
1 Tbsp Onion powder
1 Tbsp Garlic powder
1 Tbsp butter/olive oil/coconut oil

Optional Add-ins to change the flavor:
Grated cheese
Curry powder & Coconut milk
Red pepper & mustard powder

Directions:
In a cast iron pot or regular pot add in oil, chopped vegetables and let cook for about 5-8 minutes until sautéed through. Add in the cooked sweet potatoes, and spices then using your spoon or kitchen utensil mash it up a bit so that it breaks apart from its whole form. Let cook for another 6-8 minutes. Add in chicken stock and stir for a minute or so. In batches, dump mixture into a blender and if you have a “soup” setting put it on soup if not let it blend up until it is mixed through. Once you have mixed all of your batches, either store in a few mason jars and freeze them once they have cooled or store in the fridge so it’s ready to eat.

Great additions after it’s cooked:
Grilled chicken, shredded chicken, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro, chopped fresh basil, diced peppers
