Seven soups every Saturday: sweet potato soup recipes
In my first post-college apartment, I painted one wall chocolate brown, and foam mattresses covered in a sort of Scandinavian brown-and-orange print fabric took the place of real couches. While brown and orange aren't my fashion colors, they are definitely my Fall food colors. So perhaps it's the color of sweet potato soups that attracts me just as much as the flavor. If you only think of sweet potatoes as the base that holds up marshmallows, you're in for a revelation when you turn them into soup. And don't forget that sweet potatoes are packed with antioxidants and Vitamins A and C. Good taste, and good for you.
Seven sweet potato soup recipes caught my eye this week:
Chipotle sweet potato soup, from Homesick Texan
African sweet potato soup with peanut butter, black-eyed peas and beans, from Gluten-Free Goddess
Leftover turkey and sweet potato soup with black beans and lime, from Kalyn's Kitchen
Sweet potato soup with maple and bacon, from Cookin' Canuck
Curried sweet potato soup, from Not Eating Out in New York
Gingery sweet potato soup, from The Bitten Word
Cauliflower sweet potato soup, from Chez Us

Andrea, who writes the wonderful blog Andrea Meyers, shared today's photo: "Each bowl (actually, the blue Polish pottery is a big mug that I use for soup) has a story, but the one that is dearest to me is the black bowl in the basket. It's chamba pottery from Colombia, part of a set of bowls that I purchased when I lived there years ago, and is the traditional bowl for my favorite soup, Ajiaco Bogotano. The bowls are round on the bottom and sit inside those baskets to keep them upright."
If you'd like to share photos of seven soup bowls from your kitchen -- or from a friend's house, or your parents' attic, or an antique shop, or a housewares store, or a school or restaurant -- I'd love to share those photos on Saturdays.
It's easy: send one photo, of seven soup bowls. The bowls must all be able to be used for eating soup (no mixing bowls or troughs, please), and they absolutely do not have to match. Send the largest file your camera will allow; I'll size it to fit. Make sure the photo is in focus (very important). Tell me whose bowls are in the photo, or where you took the picture. If you're a blogger, I'll link to your blog.
That's it. One photo, seven soup bowls. Email to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com.
