creamy sweet potato soup with roasted parmesan brussel sprouts and sliced almonds

this post is brought to you in partnership with almond board of california

This soup is literally Fall in a bowl.  It’s super creamy and satisfying and just everything you could want on a crisp, cool Fall day.

It’s loaded with nutrients thanks to its sweet potato base and it uses almond milk instead of heavy cream so it fills you up without weighing you down.

The velvety smooth sweet potato layer is perfectly offset with the crispy roasted brussel sprouts and toasted almonds and the flavors go so perfectly together.

This will be a perfect dish to serve up using Thanksgiving leftovers!  We always have baked sweet potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts on hand after our Thanksgiving feast making it the perfect way to reuse leftovers.
