I had several sweet potatoes and wanted to make a soup. I found this recipe on a blog called Soup Addict. The combination of the sweetness from the potatoes with the spiciness of the sausage is so satisfying. And… the fried sage on top is a fun surprise! Not only was I happy to find a soup recipe for my potatoes, I was excited to find this blog! Check it out for other super fantastic soup recipes!
You can also make this meatless, see the note at the end of the recipe. This is a Gr8 main course soup or perfect as a starter.
One bowl is not enough! Enjoy!
Recipe adapted from Soup Addict.
To make this meatless, just leave the sausage out and use about 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes or a couple shakes of your favorite hot sauce bottle. (Your tolerance for spicy will determine how much to add.)
This soup can be made up to a day ahead of time and cooled to room temperature, covered and refrigerated. Reheat over low heat when ready to serve. The sage can also be fried a day ahead of time and kept in a sealed container. If you don't have an immersion blender... Transfer half of the soup mixture to your blender (or fill blender half full) and purée. (Be careful to leave a space in the lid because of the heat.) Then empty the blender mixture into another pot and add more soup mixture to the blender (until half full) and purée. Repeat until all the soup is creamy. Then continue with Step 14.
