This soup was my lifesaver early last week when I wasn’t able to chew anything. Although I am (thankfully) now fully recovered from my wisdom teeth operation, this soup was a delicious way to enjoy my liquid diet meals. Also, the only reason I decided to stop relying solely on mushy foods was because I really wanted chicken wings on my birthday…is this bad?
I’m typing this post right before I have to rush off to class, so I’ll be fairly quick about it. Ever since I discovered that I love sweet potatoes, I have been looking for an excuse to include them in everything I make. This soup was the perfect way to do this and, although I ate probably 1/4 of the potato before it even made it in the soup pot (roasted sweet potato = heaven), what was included added a lot of flavour and contributed to the overall consistency.
This might be the last hot soup I make for awhile, since the winter months are speeding towards the end. Who knows though, if Ottawa weather keeps acting the way it is I might just have to extend my winter cooking until the end of March. Fingers crossed that this is not the case, I want to start taking food pictures outside again!!!
PS: Ha! Just realized that the first picture looks like a soupy sunset.

Incredible idea – I gotta try this!
Thanks Mike :) let me know how it is if you end up making it!
I hope the winter ends soon, too! Although I still have so many more “winter dishes” I want to make this season.. hehe. ;) I, too, also learned I loved sweet potatoes this year – who would have thought?
This soup looks great! Most veggies go very well with roasted red peppers. I was going to make a roasted red pepper and carrot soup, but looks very tempting, too. :)
Thanks for your comment! I mostly just want the winter to end so that I can take pictures outside on my patio again, haha! I’ll keep checking out your blog to see your final winter dishes of the year :). Sweet potatoes are AWESOME, I think everyone should love them!
Your red pepper and carrot soup sounds good too – if the winter keeps up much longer I might have to try it out!
The change in daylight savings time will definitely help with sunlight after work! :)
