I love soup...ever since I moved to Germany about7 years ago. I eat it more months out of the year than not here. Takes a while for me to get tired of it but it certainly doesn't hurt to expand my soup repertoire once in a while. Enter the sweet potato..why haven't I thought of this sooner? (Perhaps because I was inspired by a friend's soup recipe using sweet potato! I'll have to try this sometime too!) But for now I had to get by with what I had in my fridge:
- 1 large sweet potato
- 2 carrots
- 1/2 onion, finely chopped
- Chopped garlic (about 1 clove or 1 spoonful of pre-chopped)
- 1 parsnip (a key ingredient in most of my soups)
- Ground ginger
- White pepper
- Vegie or chicken bouillion
- About a cup of Lentils
Of course, in Germany, we always serve soup with bread (not pictured here)...Guten Appetit!
