Sweet potatoes aren't just for fries anymore. They're great for soup—especially when paired with the sweetness of apple and the spice of curry.
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) oil
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large peeled, diced apple
  • ¾ tsp (4mL) salt
  • 2-3 tsp curry powder
  • 1- ¾ cups (450mL) vegetable broth
  • 1- ¾ cups (450mL) unsweetened apple juice
  • 2 large peeled, cooked and mashed American sweet potatoes*
  • 1 (100g) container plain low-fat yogurt
  • 4-6 fresh sprigs cilantro
  • pecans or chopped red pepper (for garnish -- optional)
  1. Cook and stir until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. 

  2. Add broth and apple juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes. 

  3. Add mashed sweet potato and with an immersion blender or food processor mix ingredients until smooth. 

  4. Bring to a second boil over medium heat; whisk in yogurt. Reheat just until hot (do not boil). 

  5. Serve topped with cilantro, apple slice, pecans or chopped red pepper if desired.
