It snowed in Portland this last week and we may get more snow today! This only happens about once every five years so you have to take full advantage of it when it does. The whole town basically goes crazy and isn’t quite sure what to do with it. My favorite thing to do on a snow day, other than stay inside, is make a pot of soup. Today’s recipe for Mashed Sweet Potato Soup is the perfect solution to snow or any cold winter’s night. The best thing about this soup, other than the great flavor, is how easy it comes together thanks to Bob Evans refrigerated Mashed Sweet Potatoes. They are made with real milk and butter and the work is all done for you. Keep a couple in your freezer and then you will be ready to put together a pot of delicious Mashed Sweet Potato soup at even the hint of snow!
I started by sauteing some onions in butter and then added that into the mashed sweet potatoes and chicken broth. For seasoning, I added in cumin, red pepper flakes, cilantro and some salt. If you like it a bit hotter, add more red pepper flakes.
Let it simmer for about 10 minutes or so and then add in some coconut milk and bring it back up to temperature and it’s ready to serve. Less than 20 minutes and you’ve got a delicious bowl of mashed sweet potato soup. I also like to give it a little squeeze of lime juice and some additional chopped cilantro when I serve it.
