  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups chicken stock


  1. Heat oil in a large pot, or dutch oven, over medium heat. Add the diced onion and shallot, and season with salt and pepper. Cook 6-7 minutes, until translucent.
  2. Add garlic and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir in stock, paprika, sweet potatoes, and cinnamon, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until the sweet potatoes are tender.

    This is the best soup! My husband and I love it. Very satisfying and healthy! We have it with just some French bread or rolls.
