Creamy Sweet Potato Soup


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1-2 teaspoons salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 shallot, diced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3-4 sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 teaspoon paprika


In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and shallot, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 2 more minutes, until fragrant. Stir in sweet potatoes, stock, cinnamon, and paprika. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. (Sweet potatoes should be very tender.) Using a blender, stick blender, or food processor, purée mixture (in batches, if necessary). Return mixture to the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
