From the menu… Babette’s Cafe, 573 North Highland Ave. NE., Atlanta. 404-523-9121. babettescafe.com
This creamy soup is a seasonal favorite on the menu of Babette’s Cafe. Chef and owner Marla Adams says, “This recipe is the creation of chef Justin Kurtz. The jalapeño peppers and fresh lime give the soup a bright finish.” In our photo, the soup is garnished with deep fried julienned sweet potato strips.
A note about the recipe: Don’t be surprised by the direction to cook the vegetables until the butter is absorbed. That will happen as the sweet potatoes soften.
