Creamy Brie Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Soup

Creamy Brie Sweet Potato Pecan Pie Soup
Sweet potato casserole is a classic Thanksgiving side dish and one day I was dreaming about soups for the holidays the two ideas crossed paths this creamy brie sweet potato pecan pie soup was born! This soup has a savoury base that starts with onions and garlic moving on to chicken broth after which we start with some sweet aspects with some apple cider. The sweet potatoes are simmered in the broth until tender, brie is added for creaminess along with some more savoury undertones, and once the cheese has melted everything is pureed until silky smooth. Things are finished off with some more sweet in the form of maple syrup and a hint of vanilla! This soup is amazing just like this but I like to top my sweet potato pie with a crunch pecan topping and so I top this soup off with a crispy rolled oat and pecan crumble! Yum! This creamy brie sweet potato pecan pie soup is such a fabulous starter fro your Holiday meal and it also makes for a great meal served all by itself!
