Sweet potato Soup
Sweet Potato is a starchy, sweet tasting just like it has in it's name, tuberous root vegetable. The vegetable is cultivated in tropical and warm temperature where there is enough water for its growth.
I am sure most of you will be surprised to know that this tuberous vegetable is 76% water and just 21% of carbohydrate. They are also good source of fiber, Vitamins (Vitamin A, C, B) and Minerals (Manganese, potassium, etc). It is said, if the flesh is dark orange in color, it has more beta carotene. The leaves of the tuberous vegetable are also edible and are very much similar to turnip greens and spinach.
When I hear the word Sweet Potato the only thing that comes on my mind is Sweet potato fries. And why not..? A fries lover can love fries whenever and whatever time it may be.
So this time I though why not try something different from this vegetable like - Chips, Toast, Sweet potato hash, mashed sweet potatoes, baked sweet potatoes, sweet potato pie, soup, etc. And yes, I like this version of the Sweet potato too. The Soup version..! So let's try and see how does this delicious recipe work for you.
