Recipe Directions for Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup

  1. Directions

  2. In a large soup pot, heat the oil (and butter, if desired) over medium heat. Stir in garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes. Stir in sweet potatoes and carrots; cook for 5 minutes while stirring occasionally. Add the water, turn the heat up to high, and bring the water to a rolling boil. After 5 minutes of boiling, lower the heat and continue to cook, for approximately 30 minutes.

  3. Turn off the heat and let stand to cool for about 10 minutes. Purée the mixture in a blender or food processor; take care to transfer and process the mixture in batches. Return the puréed mixture to the soup pot, and stir in yogurt and Stevia syrup. Set to medium heat and simmer for about 5 minutes until just heated through. You can add more yogurt or water as needed to obtain the desired consistency. Serve hot with a dash of salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
