MainRecipesHoliday | Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

   Creamy Sweet Potato Soup submitted by Mom Johnson
This creamy soup goes well with grilled cheese sandwiches on a cold, blustery winter day.

Place potatoes, cut sides down in a microwave-safe dish. Add 1/4 cup water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for about 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Cool slightly and discard the potato skins.

Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat and add oil, swirling to coat. Add the onion and cook about 1 minute or until translucent. Stir in cumin and red pepper. Add stock to pan and bring to a boil. Place half of the sweet potato and half of the stock mixture in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour pureed soup into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining potato and stock mixture. Stir in the salt and divided the soup evenly among 6 soup bowls. Sprinkle cooled bacon and parmesan cheese evenly over the top and garnish with parsley if desired. Makes 6 servings.
