Sweet Potato Soup

Anyone who was a reular viewer of "The Jerry Seinfeld Show" knows there was a character modled after someone called "The Soup Nazi". I can't be too certain of who the guy is/was or anything (I didn't find the show funny and some of the characters were just plain annoying) but apparently he is real and has a large following. The recipe below is a rendition of his and according to my wife is delicious. I couldn't say as I'm not partial to sweet potatoes.


  • 4 Sweet potatoes (about 1 pound each)

  • 8 Cups water

  • 1/3 Cup butter

  • 1/2 Cup tomato sauce

  • 2 Tbsp. half & half

  • 2 Tsp. salt

  • 1/8 Tsp. pepper

  • 1/2 Tsp. dried thyme

  • 1 Cup cashew halfs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake the sweet potatoes for
45 minutes or until they are soft. Cool the potatoes until
they can be handled safely.

Peel off the skin, and put the potatoes into a large bowl.
Mash the potatoes for 15-20 seconds.

Spoon the mashed sweet potato into a large saucepan over
medium/high heat, add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

When the soup begins to boil, reduce the heat to medium/low and simmer for
50-60 minutes. Cashews should be soft. Serve hot.
