Roasted Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup

March 1, 2018

Chef Myke here once again to share a nice recipe.  As winter drags on, I feel like we could use something to warm our bones and or souls. There is nothing quite like a nice, yummy soup to help us feel cozy inside.

 

This month I have made a roasted sweet potato, and carrot soup. I love the sweet, earthy flavor of sweet potatoes, and roasting them will give this soup a rich, depth of flavor.  There is something to be said about pulling your chair up to an wonderful, hot bowl of soup while old man winter dumps a bunch of cold sleeting rain and ice on us. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my wife and I did.
