Number of Servings: 4


    1 large sweet potato
    1/2 cup dry orzo pasta
    2 cups organic chicken broth
    1 tsp salt
    2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
    1 tbsp dried dill


Poke the sweet potato with a fork in several places. Microwave on high for 15-20 minutes, until potato is soft all the way through. Meanwhile, cook orzo according to package directions (just a few minutes until pasta is soft).

Peel sweet potato and put in a deep bowl with 1 cup of chicken broth. Use a stick blender (or put in kitchen mixer) and blend until smooth. Continue adding chicken broth until the consistency you desire is reached (may use less than the full 2 cups of broth). Add the salt, Worcestershire Sauce and dill and mix again quickly.

Add orzo, and hand mix (don't blend! It will crush the orzo) until just blended.

Try adapting this for fun! Apples blended in with the sweet potato make a sweeter bisque. Add a bit of blue cheese for a "bite". SO versatile!
