Creamy Sweet Potato Soup with Hazelnuts
Creamy Sweet Potato Soup with Hazelnuts – a delicious, creamy, hearty soup that is perfect as a side for Thanksgiving or any dinner party.
Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite things to make – they are rich, buttery, and full of nutrients.
They are slightly sweet and take on a lovely smoky flavor when paired with cumin and paprika – and make a delicious, savory, and slightly sweet and spicy soup that is a lovely alternative to super-sweet sugary marshmallow sweet potato casseroles.
This creamy soup is incredibly easy to make – in just one pot!
