A little sweet and a little spicy this Sweet Potato Soup is a warm your belly option for a cold Meatless Monday.

Vegetarian Sweet Potato Soup

As the days grow shorter and temperatures colder my dinners turn towards warm, comfort foods and lots of soup. It’s kind of weird but for the 30+ years I lived in the colder climates of the East coast I did not like soup and almost never made it or even ate it. But as soon as I moved South 5 years ago I started craving, making, and eating soup! We usually have soup once a week now, what a change from once a year to once a week for 4 months!

Vegetarian Sweet Potato Soup

This Sweet Potato soup combines the sweetness of the sweet potato with a bit of spice from paprika. The sweet potatoes are baked before adding them to the soup, if you are pressed for time you can use the microwave. Just before serving make the soup smooth by using an immersion blender (sometimes I think I make soup just to play with my immersion blender! But be careful or you will end up wearing the soup!) or smooth it by batches in a blender. Serve it with additional paprika so spice level can be adjusted to individual preference. Serve with a salad and bread or rolls for a satisfying cold weather meal.
