Sweet Potato Corn Bisque

With the leaves changing, fall is officially upon us. Each year, I reach for my favourite soup recipes to make and stock up the freezer for those cooler months ahead. There is something truly comforting with being able to cozy up after a long day and enjoy a heart warming soup. This past weekend, my mom and I spent much of our time making different soups, so I am quite stocked for a while now (super thrilled about this!). We made a hearty cabbage soup, a sweet butternut squash soup and a spicy sweet potato corn bisque.

My mom’s recipe for sweet potato corn bisque always ends up being a crowd pleaser. It is sweet, spicy, warm, hearty and creamy-without-the cream! I love making this soup because is so easy to prepare, nutritious and full of flavour. Here’s the dish-
