  • I usually just use 1 TSP of dried parsley or cilantro instead of getting a huge bushel of the fresh stuff (unless I already have it for some reason). I also prefer the parsley over the cilantro.

    The dollop of yogurt at the end with the pumpkin seeds is optional but it is quite tasty with the seeds.

    This recipe is extremely easy to make because you can roughly chop the onions and yams since it will be going into a blender anyway.

Technically, it's yam soup but "sweet potato" sounds better. So easy and delicious - my new favorite soup.
