Curried Sweet Potato Apple Soup

Curried Sweet Potato Apple Soup at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet - thismamacooks.comWhile I recover from shoulder surgery over the next couple of weeks (and then some), I’d like to share a few terrific fall recipes the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission sent me. As the chill of autumn starts to settle in, nothing hits the spot like a nice, warm bowl of soup!

Easy to freeze for later or to serve family style, this naturally sweet soup made with nutrient-packed sweet potatoes is a hearty and healthy way to welcome the changing weather.

You can connect with the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission on Facebook, on Twitter @Sweet_Taters and on their blog.

Tip: leave out the croutons if you're gluten free. Or make homemade croutons from gluten free bread!
