Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup

This is truly a tag team effort! This morning I mentioned to the sous chef that I was thinking we could make a soup out of lonely sweet potato we had left over. I was headed to class and we were going to the farmers market right after that so the power was left up to her and she rocked it! She came back with 2 recipes and we selected this one from her now favorite food blog (which isn’t this one?!.. sadly its true): Smitten Kitchen.  But the recipe was great because not only did it use the sweet potato but also a few other extras we had lying around: frozen garlic cubes, 7 tiny ozette potatoes, and spinach. We got some Andouille sausage, leeks, and a sweet potato at the farmers market and we were off!

What an amazing soup! The slightly spicy sausage goes great with the 1/2 lightly mashed sweet potato. And even the wilted spinach was not too much for me (which is surprising).   The texture was thick but not smooth and the contents were nice and chunky; just the way I like soup!
