Sweet Potato Soup with Seared Tomatillos Recipe

Katie decided to purchase a new Vitamix and couldn't wait to try this Sweet Potato Soup with Seared Tomatillos recipe. Here are her comments. (I made this today. Blended a lime for lime juice. First time trying tomatillos. Pretty spicy. Use less jalapeno if you don't like hot.)

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
