Roasted Sweet Potato Soup

What do you do when you have some leftover roasted sweet potatoes, why make some soup of course.

Making a sunflower out of the cream garnish is my lame attempt at being artsy-fartsy. 

Let's get to making some soup...

 

mont_002

In a medium saucepan, cook a finely diced onion and a carrot until golden brown. Deglaze the pan with some cognac and simmer until most of the cognac has evaporated. 

 

 

mont_004

Add the sweet potatoes and mix in very well with the onion-carrot cognac mixture. 

 

 

mont_005

Add vegetable stock, salt, pepper and thyme.

Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer to heat the sweet potatoes. 

 

While the potatoes are simmering make the garnish

mont_006

In a small bowl, to some crème fraîche or crema, add orange zest and a drizzle of orange juice. 

 

 

mont_007

Toast a nice slice of crusty bread, I happen to like sourdough, lightly butter it and top with some grated Parmesan cheese, place under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and melted. 

By now the sweet potatoes and heated through and ready to be smashed with a potato masher or blended until it reaches your desired consistency. 

 

Plate and garnish with the orange flavored cream. 

 

I'm not a recipe writer, so here's my best attempt at explaining how I made the soup.
