This soup is a wonderful way of enjoying sweet potatoes, especially from the garden. You'll love the creamy texture and flavors of garlic and thyme.

Yield

2 1/2 quarts (10 servings)

Ingredients

1 whole garlic bulb
3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 large), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch
slices
2 large onions, cut into wedges
6 cups Progresso® Reduced-Sodium Chicken Broth, divided
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

Remove papery outer skin from garlic bulb (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut top off bulb; brush with 1/2 teaspoon oil. Wrap in heavy-duty foil.

Preheat oven to 425°F (218°C). Grease a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Place sweet potatoes and onions in prepared baking pan. Drizzle with remaining oil; toss to coat.

Bake garlic and vegetables for 30 to 35 minutes or until tender. Cool for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place 1 1/2 cups broth, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper in a blender. Squeeze softened garlic into mixture; cover and process until smooth. Transfer to a large saucepan.

In batches, process the sweet potatoes, onions and remaining broth until smooth; add to garlic mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
