Creamy Sweet Potato Soup
2 T butter
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
3 cups chicken broth (I used homemade turkey broth, and it was fab)
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup cream
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté until onion is translucent. Add chicken broth and sweet potatoes, and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium low, and let simmer 20-25 minutes, or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Add salt and pepper, and puree using an immersion blender (or a regular blender if you don't have one). Stir in cream, and serve.
