Oh, how I love soup this time of year. And even though I live in CA and the weather has been in the 70′s this week (don’t hate!), I still crave this velvety, rich, and creamy roasted sweet potato soup while I read all the news stories about everyone else surviving the blustery winter. It’s heart and incredibly filling, while still being just 3 Points + per serving. The little touch of orange zest adds just the right kiss of flavor to the slight smokiness of the roasted sweet potatoes. I also like to add a sprinkle of ground chipotle powder on top of each serving to add a kick of heat too. This is the perfect soup for when you don’t feel like chopping lots of vegetables or slaving over a simmering stew all day. It’s quick, easy, and absolutely divine. Enjoy!
