Sweet Potato and Ham Soup Recipe
Sweet Potato and Ham Soup
Flavors of the USA
Total time: 15 to 30 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

You could use leftover sweet potatoes to reduce the preparation time.

If you've cooked a ham on the bone, use this ham in the soup because it's much more flavorful. Otherwise you can use breakfast ham. 

For 4 servings

- 3 sweet potatoes, cubed and roasted
- 85 g / 3 oz. cooked ham, cubed
- 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 125 ml / 1/2 cup brewed coffee

  1. In a large saucepan, brown the country ham in oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and brown.
  3. Add the coffee and stir for a few minutes while simmering.
  4. Add the water and bring to a simmer.

  6. Add the sweet potatoes and peppercorns and return to a simmer.
