Maple-Kissed Cream of Sweet Potato Soup with Bacon-Cheddar Crostini
Ingredients
  • 3  large sweet potatoes
  • 3  cups  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2  teaspoon  pumpkin pie spice
  • 2/3  cup  plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 2  tablespoons  maple syrup
  • 1/4  cup  finely shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (1 ounce)
  • 1 1/2  tablespoons  reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1  slice bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 2  teaspoons  finely chopped green onion
  • 4  1/2-inch slices baguette-style French bread, toasted
  • 1  tablespoon  sliced almonds
Directions

1. Scrub sweet potatoes; pat dry with paper towels. Prick potatoes with a fork. Microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 12 to 14 minutes or until tender, rearranging once. Cool slightly.

2. Cut potatoes in half and scoop pulp into a blender or food processor. Add 1 cup of the broth. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Transfer pureed mixture to a medium saucepan. Stir in the remaining 2 cups broth and pumpkin pie spice. Cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in yogurt and maple syrup.

3. Meanwhile, preheat broiler. For crostini, in a small bowl combine cheese, mayonnaise, bacon, and green onion. Spread about 2 teaspoons of the mixture on each toasted baguette slice. Sprinkle with almonds. Broil 4 to 5 inches from the heat until mixture is hot and bubbly.

4. To serve, ladle soup into serving bowls. Top with crostini.
