Sweet Potato Pomegranate Soup

Sweet Potato Pomegranate Soup

Oh boy! I might sound crazy but I love winter and especially when it’s really cold, snowy, and grey and we are covered with sweaters up to our necks. At this time I can only think of a warm bowl of soup bursting with flavors, snuggled under a blanket and watching some relaxing shows on the television. Not too much planning, staying indoors all together and cozy with each other, is my stress buster. At the same time walking through the grocery store with the smell of festivities just uplifts the mood immensely.

And while I was in my thoughts for the night I filled my cart with lots of pomegranates since it just started to flood the market and of course sweet potatoes, because I was eyeing some healthy carbohydrates for a while.

I have never made a soup with pomegranate in it and this was my total crazy idea to blend this beautiful red fruit in soup along with the delicious sweet potatoes and season with garlic and basil. Oh my goodness…..this was the tastiest soup I could ever imagine. I gobbled the whole pan of soup just by saying to myself that “I am only tasting”  :)

Next day I made some more Sweet Potato Pomegranate Soup for everyone and we all heartily enjoyed it while snuggling under a warm cozy blanket. This time I topped the soup with some pomegranate kernels because I love pomegranates and wanted to bite on them. And yessss, don’t forget to adjust the spice level as per your preference and enjoy with some dinner rolls.
