Sweet Potato and Apple Soup | The Chef Next Door #RecipeTwist

I eat soup pretty much all year round, but I absolutely love it in the fall and winter. There is nothing better than making a pot of homemade soup and the aromas it fills the house with. From French onion to creamy tomato to cheesy broccoli, I've cooked a lot of soups over the years, and I certainly have my favorites.

I've had butternut squash and apple soup before in a restaurant, but never made it at home. I decided to give it a try recently and make my own, but I gave my recipe a twist by using sweet potatoes instead of squash. I love sweet potatoes and thought they would be a perfect pairing with fresh apple and some nutmeg, and boy was I right! The soup is absolutely delicious and was quickly devoured by my entire family.

I use Swanson broths in most of my cooking, and the Swanson 100% Natural Chicken Broth was perfect for this soup. It gave it more flavor and more depth, which is just what I was looking for.

The soup is warm and comforting and goes great with a slice or two of toasted baguette. I also like to top each individual bowl with a few chopped walnuts. They add a great crunch, and are also full of antioxidants which are good for brain and heart health. 

So what are you waiting for? Let's make some soup!

Ingredients:
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1 large apple, roughly chopped 
2 cups Swanson 100% Natural Chicken Broth 
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
Chopped walnuts, for topping

Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, about 6 minutes.

Add the sweet potatoes, apple, broth, water and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to simmer and cook, covered, until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

Working in batches, carefully transfer the mixture to a blender and puree until smooth. (If the soup is too thick, you can add a bit more water to reach the desired consistency.) 

Ladle the soup into bowls and top with chopped walnuts, if desired.

Bon App├ętit!
