Sweet Potato Soup with Lobster & Corn Cream

Makes 8 Servings
wine WINE PAIRING
White Bordeaux

This soup is rich, creamy, smooth, sweet, earthy, and, thanks to the lobster, incredibly luxurious. It’s a great way to stretch your lobster dollars further by getting a lot of servings out of a single lobster tail without anyone complaining that they didn’t get enough.

(Well…no more than they’d normally complain about never having enough lobster)

Roast the sweet potatoes on a sheet pan until tender, then remove them from the oven & set them aside to cool.

In a large pot, saute the onions, carrots and celery in the olive oil until softened.

Deglaze the pot with the white wine & simmer to reduce by half. Add the chicken stock & simmer until the vegetables are tender.

Remove the bay leaf and move the soup base to a blender. Blend until smooth.
