Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 ½ inch chunks
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 chipotle chili in adobo, minced or more to taste
  • 6 ounces sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 sliced scallions, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery and salt and cook, stirring occasionally until the onion is softened and starting to brown, about 7 minutes. Stir in cumin and cinnamon and cook until the spices are fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add sweet potatoes and broth, cover, increase heat to high and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low to maintain a gentle simmer, and cook, uncovered until the potatoes are completely soft and falling apart, about 20 minutes. Add chili and vinegar and remove from the heat.
  2. Working in batches, carefully transfer a few cups of the sweet potato mixture to a blender and puree. Use caution when pureeing hot liquids. Alternatively use an immersion blender. Stir cheddar into the soup until completely melted. Serve immediately with the scallions on top.
