Growing up, I thought I didn’t like sweet potatoes. To be fair, my only exposure to them was the (to me) sickeningly sweet Thanksgiving dish loaded up with brown sugar and marshmallows. Wayyyyy too sweet for my palate. Sweet potatoes are plenty sweet on their own, which, I’m guessing, is where they got their name. I mean, I’m not a scientist…but I think that’s a pretty safe conclusion. So I like to take them in a savory direction.
While waiting for a table at a local restaurant, we wandered in to a building that had been a breakfast restaurant that went out of business to see what the new place that had opened up was. Turns out it is now an artisan bakery, and they had just finished their first day of business. They had some leftover loaves of ciabatta, and offered us one to take home.
This soup. Man. It is velvety smooth and tastes like it’s full of heavy cream, but it doesn’t have a drop. There’s nothing better than a recipe that makes your mouth and your waistline happy!
Ditch the jar and start making your own healthy tomato sauce! It’s easy to make, and freezes well for those nights when you need to get a meal on the table quickly. We like this sauce over a mix of pasta and zoodles. Ready? Let’s get cooking!
