Ingredients

  • 1 Pound sweet potatoes
  • 8 Ounces tart apples
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2-3 Tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 3/4 Cup vegetable broth
  • 1 3/4 Cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 3/4 Teaspoons salt
  • 6 Ounces plain, low-fat yogurt
  • 3/4 Cups croutons, optional

Directions

Pierce sweet potatoes and apples with fork tines. Microwave sweet potatoes and apple on high until apple is very tender, about 6 to 7 minutes. Remove apple; set aside until cool enough to handle. Continue microwaving sweet potatoes on high until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes longer; set aside until cool enough to handle.

Meanwhile, in large saucepan over medium heat, heat oil; add onion and curry powder; cook and stir until onion begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes. Transfer broth mixture to bowl of food processor; reserve saucepan. Halve sweet potatoes and apple; remove apple core; scoop potato and apple pulp from skin; add to processor. Add salt; whirl until very smooth, gradually adding apple juice through processor feed tube. Transfer mixture to reserved saucepan; bring to boil over medium heat. Whisk in yogurt; reheat just until hot; do not boil. Serve topped with croutons, if desired.

Sweet Potato Shopping Tip

Only buy potatoes that are firm, intact, and without any sprouts or green parts.

Sweet Potato Cooking Tip

Potatoes oxidize quickly; have a bowl full of cold water to put your potatoes after cutting them in order stop them from oxidizing.
