Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small skillet, heat the oil and butter on medium until butter melts. Add shallots and thyme. Cook 4 minutes until shallots are golden, stirring often.
  2. Transfer to a slow cooker bowl. Add sweet potatoes, carrots, and water. Season with salt. Cover and cook on low 3–4 hours, until sweet potatoes are very tender.
  3. In a blender, purée soup in batches until smooth. Be sure to keep the lid a little off and hold a towel over it - otherwise the heat will make the lid fly!
  4. Stir in the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with the parsley.

Recipe Tips

Make it vegan by using all oil instead of butter.

Add protein and fiber by blending in one can of drained and rinsed white beans.
