  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion (chopped)
  • celery ribs (chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 large orange-flesh sweet potatoes)
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Melt the butter in a large, stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the celery and sauté for 5 more minutes until softened. Then add the garlic and cook a minute more.
  • Add sweet potatoes, vegetable stock, cinnamon stick, and nutmeg. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and simmer uncovered until the sweet potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove cinnamon stick. Use an immersion blender to purée the soup or work in batches and purée the soup in a standing blender.
  • Add the cream and milk to the pureed sweet potato soup, and heat on medium until the soup is heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
