CROCKPOT CREATIONS

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Soup

2018年8月8日

Sweet potatoes were one of those foods that I decided I didn’t like a long time ago.

I’m so glad I came to my senses and tried them again over the past several years.  Not only are they a pretty, pretty orange color… but they’re sweet and so dang delicious!

I’ve put them in chili, I’ve roasted them with coconut oil, I’ve made them into a shepherd’s pie, and now… I’ve made my first Sweet Potato Soup.

While perusing pinterest, I landed on this simple to make Sweet Potato soup.  Now, there’s not much that I make that’s paleo, but this one most certainly is.  It comes from the fabulous Julie Bauer over at PaleOMG and cooks up in about 3 hours in the slow cooker.
