Sweet potato squash soup

Tonight I couldn't decide between mashed potatoes or soup - so I combined both!

It started with the sweet potatoes.

They went into the steamer for 8 minutes. Then I tossed the cooked cubes of sweet potatoes into a sauce pan and added 1 Tbsp. of this:

My sister says it is one of her favorite yogurts so I figured I would give it a try.

I used the hand blender and pureed the potatoes and yogurt until it was smooth. 

Then came the squash - I added in about half of this container:

It ended up tasting great. The bulgarian yogurt is super tangy so that added a nice flavor to the soup.

I decided I had not had enough greens today so I made one of my standby dishes - garlic spinach.

I grabbed a couple of handfuls of frozen spinach and tossed in with garlic powder and olive oil in a pan on medium heat.

And tonight I did something unusual - Well, unusual for me anway - I had dessert!

Night, all!


  1. looks like you were successful combining the best of both wolds of mashed potatoes and soup!

  2. That looks awesome. I love a nice thick and creamy soup.

    How's that Bulgarian yoghurt? Is it thicker like greek yoghurt?

    The Bulgarian yogurt is thinner than the greek yogurt. The unusual thing about the Bulgarian yogurt is that it has a really nice clean, slightly lemony flavor. I think it will work great for flavoring dishes.
