Thunder Snow and Sweet Potato Soup

We are once again under a severe winter snow warning.  Blizzard conditions in some areas.  It started out as rain then turned to snow.  Along with the snow there was lots of thunder.  They call it thunder snow – seems to happen during  fall and spring snows.

Roads are bound to be an icy mess tomorrow.  I’ll probably be working from home.  Already made a batch of  soup and am planning on a couple more batches of different varieties tomorrow  to serve as lunches through the weekend.

This is one I’ve been wanting to try for a while.  It’s a blended sweet potato soup.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Creamy Sweet Potato Tomato Soup

  • 2 large tomatoes or 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 small zucchini, quartered
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 8 pieces each
  • 1 large carrot, scrubbed, cut into quarters
  • 1 apple, cored
  • 2 cups vegetable broth – I prefer low sodium
  • 2 cups water
  • salt and pepper to taste

In blender, add all ingredients, except water.  Blend until smooth, add water as needed.  Add mixture to saucepan, along with water, salt and pepper.  Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat and let simmer for 30 minutes.  Serve with a crusty bread.  Serves 4
