Citrus and chili add a festive touch to this colorful soup. To make it more nutritious and tasty, add a dollop of yogurt lime before serving.

Ingredients
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) chili powder
  • 3 cups (750 mL) low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • 5 cups (1.25 L) cubed peeled sweet potatoes, (about 2 large)
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) 1% milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) 1.5% plain yogurt, divided
  • Pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) grated lime zest
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice

 

Directions
  1.  In large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and chili powder; sauté for about 5 minutes or until soft. Add broth and sweet potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes


  2. Transfer to blender or food processor, in batches, or use an immersion blender in the pot, purée until very smooth, adding some of the milk if necessary to thin. Return soup to pot, if necessary. Stir in milk. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until steaming, but do not let boil.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch into 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the yogurt. Stir into soup; heat, stirring, for 1 minute. Season to taste with pepper. Stir lime zest and juice into remaining yogurt. Ladle soup into warmed bowls; dollop lime yogurt on top of each serving.
