Sweet Potato Soup

2 cups of diced sweet potato

2 cups of greens 

1 cup of julienned smoked sausage

1/2 cup of butter

Green Onion

1/4 cup of minced garlic

1 cup of flour

3 Quarts of chicken stock

1 quart of heavy cream

Garlic chives (no more than 1/2 cup)

Salt and pepper

One hot pepper

 

In a soup pot, melt butter over medium heat and stir in the sausage, onions, pepper, and garlic.  Saute 3 to 5 minutes, whisk in flour to make a blonde roux.  (you don't want the flour to turn brown)

Add chicken stock, one ladle at a time, stirring constantly until a soup consistency is reached.  Stir in sweet potato.  Bring to a rolling boil, reduce and simmer approximately 30 minutes.  Mix in cream, greens and chives.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  When the potatoes are tender, serve in bowls.
