Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup a la Crockpot

Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup a la crockpot

Fall is the perfect time to dust off your crock-pot and whip up a delicious soup. I especially love my crock-pot in the cold weather because you can prep everything in the AM and then come home to a hot dish! I was browsing my Heart Warming Fall Recipes & Crockpot Recipes Pinterest Boards and I got inspired to make a Sweet Potato soup because orange is so festive this time of year and complements all of my pumpkin decor! I especially loved that this recipe called for a dash of curry powder – a spice I am obsessed with.

To serve my guests, I chose a cool black and white color palette on my table to dress up the casual cuisine. I used my new Chilewich Boucle Placemats, Crate & Barrel soup bowls served on white side dishes, and StoneTextile diamond print napkins.

I hope this creamy soup helps to warm you and your guests on a chilly day {just make sure you get it prepped in the AM because it needs 7-8 hours to cook!}. And if you are on a soup kick, check out my lentil soup recipe, it’s so yum!

    This is in my crockpot right now! I can’t wait to go home to it. What kind of beverage would you recommend to pair with this dish? White wine, beer, bourbon…?
