Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add the sweet potatoes, chopped apple, broth, nutmeg, and 1½ cups water. Bring to simmer and cook, covered, until the potatoes are tender, 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. Working in batches, transfer the mixture to a blender and puree until smooth, adding more water if necessary to reach the desired consistency. (Alternatively, use a handheld immersion blender in the pot.)
  4. Serve the soup with the blue cheese, walnuts, crackers, and sliced apples.

Quick Tip

2011 Bogle Chardonnay
Want a glass of wine with dinner? A crisp Chardonnay (often labeled “unoaked”) or Sauvignon Blanc will play off the richness of the blue cheese and nuts.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
