Abi Approved Sweet Tator Soup

This is a "hubby original." He is quite the cook, I must say. We had a massive sweet potato, and then he came up with this amazing soup. Our 1 year old daughter couldn't get enough, and we called it the above name. Enjoy!

  • 1 1/2 - 2 Cups Sweet Potato (one big mama sweet potato)
  • 1 Big Carrot
  • 1 1/2 Cups chicken stock (I used chicken bouillon cubes)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • Couple cloves garlic(finely chopped)
  • Small piece of ginger (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 2 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Cup cream (or more milk if you don't have/to keep healthier)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon parsley
  • salt/pepper to taste

Boil the sweet potato and carrot together in a big pot. Once soft, drain some water until you have about 1 1/2 Cups left of water and then added the chicken bouillon cube. Let cook one more minute for bouillon to dissolve and then put in blender to puree. (You could avoid the need to use a blender if you have an immersion blender)

Put the butter, onion, garlic and ginger in the same pot you used to cook the sweet potatoes/carrot and cook 5 minutes. Add the flour and stir until clumpy. Now add the milk and stir together in the pot until no longer clumpy!
Add the sweet potato and carrot puree back to the pot. Add whatever else I forgot to mention or is left on the list. Cook for a few more minutes and wammo, you got yourself some sweet tator soup fer dinner.
