Recipe: Sweet Apple Soup

Sweet Apple Soup

Sweet Apple Soup

This unlikely pairing of apples, sweet potato, and Canadian bacon is perfect for a chilly evening dinner. Wrap yourself in warmth by trying a bowl of this delicious soup.

Ingredients:

2 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Tbs Dried Minced Onion (1/4 c chopped fresh onion)
1/8 tsp Pepper
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
2 lbs Sweet Potatoes, diced (1/2″ size)
3 Apples, shredded (or diced 1/2″)
6 oz. Canadian Bacon, diced
2 c Chicken Stock
1 1/2 c Water
1/4 c Pumpkin Seads
4 oz. Blue Cheese (optional)

Instructions:

Heat Oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. If using fresh onion, saute until translucent. Otherwise, toss in your dried minced onion, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir to coat in the oil. Next, toss in the diced sweet potatoes, shredded apple, and diced Canadian bacon. Cover with chicken stock and water. Stir to mix the flavors. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Let simmer covered for about 15 minutes or until the sweet potato is cooked and soft. You can purée the soup if you wish but I left mine in bite size pieces this time. Serve in bowls topped with pumpkin seeds and blue cheese.
