The thing I like about Donna Hay is how she takes simple ingredients. Combines them in different ways and broadens my horizons with new flavors. I love sweet potatoes but I would NEVER have thought to make soup with them in a mix with onion and chicken stock. But Donna did. And while I am still not sure if I liked her sweet potato soup I do know it was different.
Sautee some chopped onions and chopped up sweet potato. Add some broth. Cook. Blend smooth. Top with goat’s cheese and basil. Eat.
Except I made one small change. I baked the sweet potato which I think deepened the flavor some. After it cooled I cut it up and added it to the sauteed onions and broth. I used some garlic herb goat cheese, which mixed in after pictures really brought out some great flavor. Okay, I liked it! Did the other ladies of Wednesdays with Donna Hay? Visit and see.
