Roasting the sweet potato beforehand makes this soup from Philadelphia all the more flavoursome
Method1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss the sweet potato, onion and garlic in oil, tip onto a large baking tray and roast for 20-25 mins until the vegetables are golden.
2. Tip the vegetables into a large saucepan, cover with the stock and bring to
the boil. Once boiling, remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes. Blend until smooth.
3. Return to the heat, add the cream cheese and stir until it’s all melted in. Simmer for 5 mins, season to taste and serve garnished with parsley.
