- 3 pounds of sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 1 onion
- 1 celery stalk
- 1 apple
- 2 teaspoons of salt
- ½ teaspoon of black pepper
Heat oven to 400 degrees.
Clean then prick the sweet potatoes with a fork, place them on a baking sheet and bake until tender, approximately 40 to 45 minutes.
While the sweet potatoes are roasting, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium to high heat.
Once the oil is heated, add the onion, celery, and apple into the pan, then cook, stir occasionally till ingredients are soft, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Once you have removed the potatoes from the oven, cut them in half and scoop out the insides of each and add this to the saucepan.
Add 6 cups of water, the 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Cook until heated through, 8 to 10 minutes.
Puree your soup in the saucepan using a handheld immersion blender, or use a regular blender but puree in smaller amounts to save on your blender.
To reach your desired consistency it may become necessary to add a little more water to the soup mixture, do so slowly.
Serve warm in a bowl, mug, or hollowed out pumpkin!
Garnish the soup top with cinnamon, pecans, walnuts, and thin slices of apples, delish!
