sp-7-curried-sweet-potato-apple-soupSweet Potato & Apple Soup

2tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
kosher salt and black pepper
2pounds medium sweet potatoes (about 3), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
3 apples (such as Granny Smith or Pink Lady), 1 peeled and chopped and 2 thinly sliced
2cups low-sodium vegetable broth
pinch ground nutmeg
1 cup blue cheese (maple cheddar goats cheese is awesome!)
1/3cup walnuts
16 crackers or crostini
Cooked chicken breast, chopped (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.

Add the sweet potatoes, chopped apple, broth, nutmeg, and 1½ cups water. Bring to simmer and cook, covered, until the potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.

Working in batches, transfer the mixture to a blender and puree until smooth, adding more water if necessary to reach the desired consistency. (Alternatively, use a handheld immersion blender in the pot.) For more protein, stir in cooked, chopped chicken after you’ve finished blending.

Serve the soup with the cheese, walnuts, crackers, and sliced apples.
