Sweet Potato Ginger Soup
I used leeks, but have rarely used these... check here to see how to clean them...How to clean leeks
otherwise substituting with onion and browning slightly will turn out similar.
I wanted to use my Cuisinart, so I used the slicer disk to finely dice the leeks. And since it was already out, I used the chopping blade to cut the sweet potatoes.
