Roasted Sweet Potato Soup - Lord Byron's Kitchen

Roasted Sweet Potato Soup - Lord Byron's Kitchen

Infused with roasted onion, fresh rosemary and thyme, Roasted Sweet Potato Soup is super flavourful and very creamy without adding any dairy.  Freezes well too!

I have to admit something, Dear Reader.  I hate sweet potato.  I hate it so much.  I can’t comprehend the attraction to a starchy, root vegetable and the taste of sweet.  My taste buds hate it.   It’s just gross.  And, before you respond with, “Oh, but have you tried sweet potato fries?”  I have.  Hate them.

Until now.  Why the change?  Having a colleague drop about twenty pounds of sweet potatoes at my door might be the catalyst here.  It would be a total waste to not try a recipe or two.  And, besides, both John.e and McKenna love sweet potatoes, so at least I could prepare a meal or two for them.
