Sriracha adds heat to cozy fall soup

I am a sweet potato fanatic. There's no other way to describe my fondness for the soft orange orb. So it's understandable why this easy and healthy preparation of my favorite fall vegetable is quickly becoming my go-to soup.

Today's recipe for Simple Sweet Potato Bisque is written as a vegan dish, but it's just as delicious with traditional ingredients. You will find a list of substitutions alongside the vegan ingredients.

Your final spice is also flexible. I love the heat from sriracha and the texture and deep flavor the sauteed peanuts bring. But, even plain, this bisque is delicious.

If you want to go sweet, then stir in cinnamon and maple syrup. Cumin, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, butter and even baby marshmallows can be used. You can get as creative with ingredients as you want.

Serve as a soup course for a dinner party or with a yummy grilled sandwich for a warm family dinner. Anyway you make it, I hope you enjoy!
