Creamy Potato Vegetable Soup

It's a cold, snowy day in Colorado, the perfect weather for Creamy Potato Vegetable Soup. Though it has a rich flavor, it's heavy on vegetables and light on milk and cheese. It gets most of its creaminess from my not-so-secret ingredient: potato flakes.

Sweet Potato Mash

I just love the melt in you mouth texture and rich sweetness of a sweet potato that his been baked to perfection. That texture takes a good couple of hours to achieve and I don't always think far enough ahead to make my dinnertime sweet potato dreams a reality. So, this week I decided to experiment and see if I could get that melt in you mouth texture in just 30 minutes, start to finish. I am happy to say that while it wasn't the exact same texture and sweetness that you would get from baking, it was a close second! Satisfying enough for a busy weeknight when I'm short on time.
