I had a bunch of cooked sweet potatoes that I wanted to use up. I used chili powder instead of flakes and added some turmeric. I also used green onions (about 4) and coconut oil. Since the sweet potatoes were cold out of the fridge, I mashed them a little and let them cook with the broth. Then I used my immersion blender. My kids liked it. It tastes a little like a sweet/spicy soup.
