Sweet Potato Soup with Dried Apricots

It's way too cold outside... and the weather forecast said something about heavy snowfall today. Therefore, I decided to post another warming soup recipe before I'm going to start with this year's Christmas baking session. I like sweet potatoes very much, and I was intrigued by the idea of adding dried apricots to a soup. It totally worked for me, the dried apricots add an extra something to the flavor.

(Original in German: here)

Ingredients for 2-3 servings:
1 tablspoon butter
1 red pepper
1-2 big sweet potatoes
2 teaspoons mild curry powder
50g dried apricots, diced
5dl vegetable stock
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons greek yoghurt or sour cream

Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut the sweet potatoes and the pepper into dices. In a saucepan, heat the butter and add the curry powder. Add the pepper and the sweet potato and sauté at medium heat for about ten minutes. Add the diced apricot, mix well and sauté for another 10 minutes. Add the vegetable stock and let simmer for about 15 minutes. Then, purée and add the yoghurt. Season with salt and pepper. Add some thyme leaves if you like and serve.
