Perhaps you are looking for yam soup instead. Make it the same as below. In some parts of America, the words "sweet potato" and "yam" are used interchangeably. However, in reality, they are two different plants, but the taste is similar. Try this Sweet Potato Soup and let me know what you think!

What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...

Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • If you don't have vegetable stock, use water and vegetable bouillon cubes using the quantities on the bouillon package to make up 5 cups of stock.
  • This is also nice using fresh basil. Add about ½ cup before blending.
  • Not vegetarian or vegan? Use chicken stock for a really rich flavor. 

When I told my hubby I was going to be making potato soups, he looked happy.

When I told him it was with sweet potatoes, he looked at me quizzically!

Sweet potatoes were not something either of us grew up with. They really aren't very German!

We were introduced to them through my daughter-in-love, Sylvie, when she brought a potato salad that used both regular and sweet potatoes to a family picnic. It's become one of our favorite veggies! 

Vegan soups are something that I'm starting to collect recipes for. Since I'm having more and more company coming over who have changed to this lifestyle, I'm always on the lookout for recipes that suit all. This is one of them!
