This soup is my healthy version of one of my favorite soups to order out. And I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I’ve made it several times, sometimes with coconut milk or cream and sometimes without, and either way it’s delicious with a silky-smooth texture.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Then add the onion. Sauté until onion is starting to soften but not yet turning color, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the sweet potato and cook 3 minutes more. Add the salt, pepper, bay leaf, stock, pumpkin, and brown sugar.
Bring the soup up to a boil, then turn heat down to a simmer and cook until the sweet potato is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn heat off and stir in the coconut milk or cream, if using, and then stir in the lemon juice. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper as desired.
If you want a very smooth soup, puree it in batches in a blender (or use an immersion blender). Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle the parsley on top, if desired.
I have been trying to make beer cheese soup successfully for years and I think it was the addition of butternut squash that sealed the deal. It not only helps with the flavor, but also the consistency. The recipe also calls for one of my favorite beers; Great Lakes Brewery’s Edmond Fitzgerald Porter. Add to that two types of cheddar and Gouda cheese and you’ve got a winner!
When the nip in the air becomes a definite chill then it’s time. It’s time for soup. There is no more comforting or sustaining a soup than Baked Potato Soup with Sausage and Roasted Peppers. When there is a fire crackling in the fireplace and this soup is on the table, all is well in our world regardless of what is going on outside.
