Sweet Potato Soup

     Here's another yummy sweet potato recipe for the holidays. This one is a great way to use up leftover sweet potatoes too, just adjust cooking time.
2 cups sweet potatoes, cubed and peeled'
1&1/2 cups leeks, sliced
1&1/4 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1&1/2 cups dijon mustard
1/2 tsp salt
dash of white pepper
dash of nutmeg
chopped leek for garnish

     In a large stockpot, combine sweet potatoes and broth, stir well. Cover and cook til sweet potatoes are soft. (If using leftovers, they're already cooked and soft so just get them hot.) Stir in leeks and simmer for 5 minutes. Then, put mixture into blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients (except leek garnish) and blend 30 seconds. Bowl up, garnish with thin chopped leeks and serve warm. Yields 4 servings.

    Country Gal, I just read a post from a reader that suggests adding a little real maple syrup and sweet cream to this soup. That sounds amazing.
