Sweet potato soup with roasted shiitake and pumpkin seeds

Deliciously smooth sweet potato soup with grilled shiitake and a sprinkle of squash seeds.

I discovered sweet potato when I was already adult, we didn’t have it in my country when I was growing up. Not only does it taste delicious but it is also high in nutrients. It contains a good amount of fiber, vitamin A and C, manganese. Moreover it is so versatile, there are many delicious recipes you can do with it, both savory and sweet. Here is one of the easiest ones 😉

Serves: 6. Total time: 1h (preparation 25 min, cooking 35 min)
