This Sweet Potato Soup with Maple Cream will warm you through this holiday season.  It is like having a slice of pie in a mug.  It is that good.

Welcome to the Virtual Surprise Baby Shower for Rachel!  Rachel is the champ who runs Rachel Cooks. And her popcorn craving have been driving me crazy since she announced that she was expecting!

We wanted to celebrate Rachel’s new bundle of joy by linking up and throwing her an online shower. I always give it up for momma’s that also run blogs. Honestly, I can’t even begin to pretend I know how rough it can be! I fall behind on posts and my kids are all furry and bathe themselves (well, for the most part).

Rachel is always whipping up show stopping food like this, and this, ooooh yeah and we can’t possibly forget that! She also hosts regular interviews with other bloggers. Just one more thing about her blog I totally dig. So sit on back and enjoy all the food we brought to table!

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup with Maple Cream

I made soup for my step sisters bridal shower, and it was a hit. Now, I can’t imagine throwing a party without a soup option. I stacked mugs near a crock pot set to warm so that people could help themselves throughout the day.

For the Soup:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 1 leek - white part only, sliced
  • 2 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes - peeled and cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

For the Maple Cream:

For the Soup:

  • In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. 
  • Saute the onion and leek about 3 minutes, or until softened. 
  • Add sweet potatoes, vegetable and chicken stock, salt, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil. 
  • Cover and reduce heat and simmer about 40 minutes, until sweet potatoes are fork tender. Discard the cinnamon stick.
  • Process the soup in batches with your blender (use caution when blending hot liquids!!!) or with your immersion blender, until thick and creamy. 
  • Return liquid to pot and stir in cream, vinegar, nutmeg, clove, cayenne, and pepper. Heat through, but do not let boil.

For the Maple Cream:

  • In the bowl of your electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whisk cream on high until soft peaks form.

The soup itself was wonderful but the maple cream just added that little something you did not know you needed to put it over the top!. (I also paired this with Zucccini Corn Bread spread with Ricotta Olive oil spread – yummy)
