Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup

After reading and writing about the anti-aging benefits of sweet potatoes, I decided to make a conscious effort to include them more frequently into my diet despite the fact that I don’t particularly like their taste. I find sweet potatoes to be.. well.. too sweet. I prefer savory for dinner, saving sweet for dessert. So creating recipes with an ingredient like sweet potatoes that I don’t use very often was initially daunting. But I quickly realized I could a lot with these sweet tubers and have since come up with a few sweet potato recipes that are healthy and very easy to prepare. I’ve even created a spicy sweet potato salad I love so much, I make almost every week and eat it as a mid afternoon snack! This simple sweet potato carrot soup is creamy, comforting and very satisfying.
