The natural sweetness of this low fat carrot and sweet potato soup is complemented by the spiciness of curry powder and cumin. Full of beta-carotene and a good source of fiber, this is a wonderfully nutritious beginning to a meal or a perfect lunch. Enjoy with whole grain bread or crackers.

Cook Time: 30 minutes

I have never liked sweet potatoes, but somehow this recipe appealed to me. Well, I LOVE IT!!! So easy and SO DELICIOUS!!!! I will make this over and over again. The curry is wonderful! You feel like you are eating something decadent and fattening, but you are not. Thank you for this wonderful soup!
