Cream of Sweet Potato

Cream of Sweet potato/Kahliya-logue

 Yes t`is Spring…and oh so lovely to see the sun shining at last! Though part of it being Spring is that it is not alltogether warm yet..and it even gets pretty cool still..so dont go tucking in those sweaters as of yet..! And if I may add,it`s actually still kind of nice to have a warm comforting soup.You must agree that Sweet potato is very comforting! I have already written about a simple Sweet potato(&Pumpkin) soup before,but this time I wanted a more classic pampering creamy version.Except,I dont use cream,nor do I use Cow`s milk.I used Soy Milk,and you know what?It turned out pretty awesome! This version is tremendously easy aswell,so if you like Sweet potatoes,give it a try! Did you know that Sweet potatoes are not only nice and sweet but also highly nutritious?

Ingredients:   (Yeilds 2 servings)

5 baby Sweet potatoes

 5 Champignon Mushrooms

1 chopped onion

3/4 cup Soy mik

1 tbs crushed Dried Sage leaves

1 tbs crushed Dried Zaatar leaves(not mix) /Oregano

Salt & Pepper

1 tbs Cinnamon

*    *    *    *    *

Wash the Sweet potatoes and cut in large chunks.

Place in a pot barely covering with water,bring to a boil,reduce heat and cook till tender.

Blend them with their cooking water,

Return the blend to the stove,add Spices and Soy milk.

Separately Saute chopped Onion and then Chopped Mushrooms,

and add to the cream without blending (I like it this way,did I mention before I just love chunky? 🙂 but if you prefer you can ofcourse blend it all together.

Adjust,spices to your taste and add more milk if necessary.
