Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

This soup is almost too good to be true! Smooth like velvet, the sweet potato soup is healthy and nutritious, and above all, you can prepare it on a budget in less than 30 minutes. Despite the name, the sweet potato is only distantly related to the common potato, and it by far exceeds the nutritional value of its long-lost cousin. The pink, yellow and green varieties are also high in beta-carotene. From the middle of the 20th century on the sweet potato has become less popular – it’s time we reversed the trend!
