If you ask me what my favorite foods are, sweet potatoes are definitely on the list. From roasting it and stuffing it with vegetables and grains, to pureeing it into a creamy soup…it’s delicious and beautiful anyway you prepare it.

It is still extremely cold (for a WA born-n-raised) here in Seattle, so any time I have to make soup or stew I take it. I actually am not a big fan of homogenous textured soups, so I always try to add crunchy or tender vegetables. That’s why I chose to blend part of the stew while still keeping some of those tender, soft, and so delicious chunks of sweet potato.

This stew contains simple ingredients and only requires one-pot and 30 minutes or less of your time. A perfect weeknight dinner if you ask me.
