Smoky Sweet Potato Soup

Created: Nov-18-2016

As the temperatures drop, people naturally prepare for the winter months by eating more root vegetables. This sweet potato soup is fitting for the autumn season and is a real crowd pleaser. The smoked paprika is a wonderful addition to a classic soup, and the little bit of heavy cream bring all the flavours together. Not to mention, a hot soup is the perfect thing to warm your family up on a chilly night.

 

Of course, this soup’s going to do more than just fill your belly. Sweet potatoes are rich in vitamin A, which is essential to the development of cells in your retina. Studies have found that eating foods high in vitamin A can help with night vision and improve the overall health of your retinas.
