The recipe I’m sharing today is perfect for the season. A soup is always well received on a cold day. This creamy sweet potato soup is just “comfortly delicious”. Comfort food always make you feel warm in the inside, your tummy and your soul. A taste of home.

I was so excited to make this soup because of the combination of all different flavors, the aroma, the silky texture, so good. It pairs perfectly with a salad or sandwich for lunch. It works as an appetizer either on a regular daily dinner or that special event that you might have. And of course, very easy and simple to do.
