- Sweet potato soup
In a big pot with the vegetable oil sweat the chopped onions.
Add the sweet potatoes and continue to sweat for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally.
Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a gentle simmer for another 20 minutes or so, or until the potatoes are fully cooked.
Add this preperation to a blender and blend until nice and smooth. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
In a small frying pan, sauté the onions in oil until they get a nice golden color. Transfer to a baking sheet.
Next, place the pancetta on the same baking sheet and put them in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until the pancetta is crispy and the onions tender.
In a soup bowl or a deep plate, pour the potato soup in the center. Gently place the pancetta, the pearl onions and a dollop of sour cream in suspension on top of the center of the soup. Finish off the garnish with some crispy pecans and a bit of chopped chives.
Always be cautious when using instant chicken stock mix as it is often very salty. Taste it and adjust with water if too salty to your liking.
