How To Make Roasted Sweet Potato & Apple Soup

As soon as the weather changes, we start to crave everything associated with fall. Apple cider, roasted chickens, acorn squash and, of course, a big bowl of delicious soup. When we say soup, we really mean everything that could pass for our favorite liquid meal. Stews, pot roasts, chili, you name it, we love it. One of our favorites, however, is this sweet potato and apple soup. A little bit sweet, a little bit savory, this recipe combines all our beloved flavors of autumn. Whip it up in under 30 minutes, this dish is a weeknight favorite. Learn how we make it in this video tutorial with our online culinary school instructor.

You can garnish the soup with creme fraiche, shaved radishes and green onions.
