Sweet potatoes are a hearty winter vegetable; when baked, roasted, or made into stews, their meat is rich and dense. In this cream of sweet potato soup, a little goes a long way. Sweet potatoes, with just a bit of cream and salt, stand well on their own in a sweet and savory soup.

    Quick cheat: Use a can of prepared pumpkin. Just add a touch of water, butter, and salt. The pumpkin is already cooked and can be eaten directly from the can. Also note, some brands are really squash and sweet potatoes.

    That's a great trick! To keep the consistency when using canned pumpkin, I'd cut the water down from 2/3 cup to 1/2 cup when blending.
