A yummy, hearty soup. Perfect for a cold winter day! A yummy, hearty soup. Perfect for a cold winter day!
Number of Servings: 6


    * 7 cups sweet potato, roughly peeled and chopped [for me, this was 2 large]
    * 1 cup carrot, diced [2 medium]
    * 3/4 cup onion, minced
    * 2 cups chicken broth
    * 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
    * 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
    * 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    * 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
    * 12 ounces fat free evaporated milk


Combine sweet potato, carrot, onion, and chicken broth in a large stock pot and cook over medium heat until the sweet potato is soft [hint: the smaller the pieces of sweet potato, the faster it will cook... and stir constantly or you may end up with a not-so-nice layer of crusty potato at the bottom of your pot...whoops!]. Mix in sage, basil, pepper, and nutmeg, then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and then add the milk, stirring constantly until fully combined. Simmer for at least 15 minutes or until heated through. If a creamier texture is desired you can mash the sweet potatoes and carrots with a potato masher or run the soup through a blender or food processor.
