Sweet Potato Soup

Calling all sweet potato fans! This hearty sweet potato soup will leave you feeling full, in the healthy kind of way.  The recipe is really versatile and only requires one pot to cook so its perfect to make in Stanley the Bus!

We used our stove top to heat up the sweet potatoes, however this could have easily been made over a campfire, or grill if need be. 

The recipe yielded enough soup for the five of us to have plenty to eat, but there was definitely nothing left for seconds and we all licked our bowls clean.

I added more red chili flakes to mine after it was cooked to give it more heat, however you can add or remove to achieve your desired taste.

The soup requires little effort and produces an extremely flavorful meal.  I highly recommend it to anyone who remotely likes sweet potatoes!
