Sweet Potato Bisque

A bisque is technically a creamy soup made from a strained broth of crustaceans but the word is sometimes used to describe a cream soup of pureed vegetables.

This very simple soup is creamy, rich and delicious. It comes to us from Weight Watchers Annual Recipes for Success 2003.

Sweet Potato Bisque

As usual I've written this recipe as cooked.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/3 cup celery, finely chopped
3 small sweet potatoes, finely chopped (about 4 cups)
4 cups water into which is dissolved 1/2 of a vegetable bouillon cube
1 teaspoon dried sage
salt and pepper to taste

Finely Chopped
Heat oil in soup pan over high heat. Saute onions and celery until onions are soft and beginning to brown.

Add potatoes, water, sage, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1/2 hour.

Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Puree with a stick blender. Alternately you could puree it in batches in a blender or food processor.
