Steps to prepare sweet potato soup
- In a large pot, add the potatoes, onions, celery, and chicken stock. Reduce the heat to medium-low after the mixture has reached a boil. When potatoes are soft to the touch, simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- In a separate saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter.
- Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Add the heavy cream gradually while continuing to whisk until smooth. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, or until the mixture thickens.
- Add the cream mixture to the pot with the potatoes and stir well to combine. To taste, add salt and pepper to the food.
- Blend the soup until it is completely smooth.
