Maple syrup and sage infused this slow cooker sweet potato soup with fall flavors. Before serving, stir in a bit of cream or milk to add to the rich consistency.
In a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, combine sweet potatoes, onion, maple-flavor syrup, garlic, sage, salt, and pepper. Pour broth and the water over all.
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours.
Using a potato masher, mash the soup until desired consistency.* Whisk in half-and-half until well mixed. If desired, sprinkle each serving with crumbled bacon and green onion. Makes 6 servings.
For a smoother texture, use an immersion blender to puree the soup.
