This soup only has a few ingredients, but the combination of tastes makes the soup sing to everyone in the house. I highly recommend you invest in a good sweet potato for this one. They have a few specialty sweet potatoes out there, especially in our favorite grocery store, Whole Foods Market. The one we selected for this recipe had a butterscotch sweetness to it that really finished off the soup nicely. It only takes a few minutes to place the ingredients into a pot and then you just let it simmer until it is ready to be added to the Vitamix!
