Recipe of the Month

Sweet Potato Soup
By Chef Octavio Ycaza of Rio Mar

2.5 lbs sweet potatoes
1/2 cup chopped red onions
1/4 cup minced garlic
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper (to taste)
Peel and cut sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes, dice onions and mince garlic.

In a large pot, heat up the oil, add garlic and toast slightly. Add onions and cook until translucent (about 3-5 minutes). Add salt and potatoes and enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until potatoes are soft enough to break apart with a spoon (about 15 minutes).

Strain the solids from the liquid and save the cooking liquid. In a blender, add equal parts solid and liquid in your blender. Once all the soup is blended, you may discard any remaining liquid.
Pass your soup through a strainer and add the cream. Add salt and pepper to taste.
