I have a hard time getting my sweet peas to eat vegetables. So, needless to say, I was thrilled to find a way to prepare Sweet Potato Soup in which they were willing to gobble it up.
I use the word "prepare" loosely.
I start out with a container of Imagine Creamy Sweet Potato Soup. I buy it at Dillon's Marketplace in the natural foods section. I warm the soup in a saucepan per the directions.
We dress the soup up with some fixins'. This day, we used Snowman marshmallows, a la sweet potato casserole. The girls got the slightest sprinkling of Pampered Chef Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle seasoning (also great on a bagel with cream cheese), whereas I topped the grown-up soup with Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus Spice Blend (with a hint of orange)... Another night, we prepared this with a sprinkle of Splenda brown sugar blend- just something to give it a bit of sweetness. I think I preferred it this way. In any case, we think it's delicious!
And, voila... a steamy, dreamy bowl of soup for a cold winter's night.
We usually pair our soup with toasted whole wheat and cheese sandwiches, which make for a great complement. I think we may try these next time...
