Yield: Makes 4 generous servings
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cooking time: 40 Minutes (Mostly Unattended)<Br>

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes (2 medium), peeled and diced
  • 3 ½ cups vegetable stock
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

 

Place the onion, sweet potatoes, and stock in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat, cover, and cook until the sweet potatoes are soft, about 25 minutes.
