I want to give a special shout out to Yasmin who had multiple entries and actually took the prize home for weeks 2 & 3 of the contest. Her final recipe was a Sweet Potato & Yam Soup that I think is perfect for a day like today. So, if you’re feeling like staying in and making some soup, head over to your neighborhood Market and pick up these ingredients to have yourself a warm and comforting soup that’s full of vitamin A and fiber!
Sweet Potato & Yam Soup
· 2 yams
· 1 large sweet potato
· 1 can of chicken or vegetable broth
· Take yams and sweet potatoes and wash and peel them. Slice into round disks and place in the oven at 350* with a light oil or cooking spray for approximately 40 minutes.
· Let cool. Add the disks then to your blender and pureed with equal parts broth until smooth and creamy.
· Transfer liquid to pot (or microwave safe dish) and heat until warm!
Note: Yasmin likes to take it up a notch and bakes some sweet potato and yam chips in the oven. You can also purchase a whole grain tortilla chip or cracker to serve alongside as well.
