Recently, I was browsing my Twitter stream, when I noticed a tweet from Denise at Petits Chefs Academy about making some Sweet Potato Apple Soup. I love making homemade soups, and sweet potatoes and apples sounded like the perfect combination for fall.
Denise was kind enough to share her soup recipe with me, and with our Tweenhood readers (see below for the recipe). I gave the recipe a trial run, and the soup received rave reviews from my family. My daughter actually declared it one of the best soups I’ve ever made, so I know it’s a winner. She liked it so much, she asked to take the leftovers to school for lunch the next day – you have to love it when your kids like your healthy cooking!
This healthy recipe was designed to be made by kids in the Petits Chefs Academy cooking classes, so it’s a great recipe to make together with your own kids at home. If you have a child who’s a picky eater, you’ll definitely want to involve them in making the soup, as often kids that are reluctant to try new foods are more willing to do so when they’ve helped make it themselves.
The soup does end up being quite thick and hearty, which I loved. If you (or your kids) don’t like your soup too thick you can always add in more chicken or veggie broth when preparing it.
We had the soup for dinner with some fresh bread, and it was quite filling but it would go great with sandwiches too. The leftovers are great for lunches.
Here’s the recipe for the Sweet Potato and Apple Soup – be sure to let us know what you think if you try it!
