Sweet Potato Soup

This is a delicious creamy soup for a cold winter day.

3 extra large sweet potatoes

2 medium white potatoes

1 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 large chopped onions

3 chopped carrots

1 stalk chopped celery

3 cloves garlic

1 cup red or white wine

6 to 8 cups chicken stock

1 1/2 cup half and half or cream

1/4 cup brown sugar

Microwave the sweet potatoes and white potatoes  till a fork can pierce them. You can also boil them with the teaspoon of salt.

Set aside.

Cook the onions, carrots, celery, garlic in the oil till soft

Add the wine and cook till it is at least 1/2 evaporated

Add the inside if all the potatoes, brown sugar and the chicken stock. Do not use the skin.

Puree with a blender till it is nice and smooth

Add the cream and salt and pepper.

I served it with dots of sriracha sauce and a sausage sandwich.

This is another takeoff from Saveur Magazine.
