Make sweet potato soup in your slow cooker

Updated Jan 6, 2018

This time of year, especially on northern routes, few things are as welcoming at the end of a day of driving as a hearty bowl of soup.

This recipe for slow cooker sweet potato soup fills that to a “T”; it’s like a warm flannel shirt and favorite pair of sweats for our soul. Plus, it’s about as easy as can be to make.

This recipe from the nice folks at Delish calls for some spices familiar to those who enjoy the cuisine of India: Grated ginger, curry power, cinnamon.

It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and five hours to cook in your truck’s crock pot.

The only special tool you need is an immersion (stick) blender. Otherwise, this soup is as easy to make as it is enjoyable to eat.

One of the nice thing about making your own soup is that you can control your salt intake. Most canned soups or those served at restaurants and truck stop fast food places contain plenty of sodium.
