SWEET POTATO BISQUE.
********************
3 medium sweet potatoes
5 cups (1.25 L) chicken stock
2 Tbs (30 ml) olive oil
2 medium onions, finely chopped
2 ribs celery, finely chopped
2 - 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp (10 ml) freshly grated ginger
1 cup (250 ml) heavy cream or half-and-half
1/4 cup (60 ml) dry sherry (optional)
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Sour cream for garnish (optional)
Chopped fresh chives for garnish (optional)

Boil the sweet potatoes in salted water until tender. Peel and mash with a little of the chicken stock until smooth. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large pot over moderate heat and saute the onions, celery, and garlic until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the sweet
potatoes, ginger, and remaining stock and bring to a boil. Simmer covered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cream and optional sherry, and season with salt and pepper. Serve garnished with a dollop of sour cream and/or chopped chives if desired.
