Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup

I pretty much used smitten kitchen's recipe directly. However, it looks like she took the recipe from Bon Appetit. I'm giving credit where it's due, but let me repost it for you anyways! ;)

Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup
Bon Appetit, October 2007

Gourmet note: This hearty soup gets rich flavor from linguica, a delicious pork sausage from Portugal seasoned with garlic, paprika, and other spices.

Makes 8 servings

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 10- to 11-ounce fully cooked smoked Portuguese linguica sausage or chorizo sausage, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices (Spanish chorizo can be substituted)
2 medium onions, chopped
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds red-skinned sweet potatoes (yams; about 2 large), peeled, quartered lengthwise, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 pound white-skinned potatoes, peeled, halved lengthwise, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
6 cups low-salt chicken broth
1 9-ounce bag fresh spinach


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Add sausage; cook until brown, stirring often, about 8 minutes. 
  3. Transfer sausage to paper towels to drain. 
  4. Add onions and garlic to pot and cook until translucent, stirring often, about 5 minutes. 
  5. Add all potatoes and cook until beginning to soften, stirring often, about 12 minutes. 
  6. Add broth; bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. 
  7. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until potatoes are soft, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes. 
  8. Using potato masher, mash some of potatoes in pot. 
  9. Add browned sausage to soup. 
  10. Stir in spinach and simmer just until wilted, about 5 minutes. 
  11. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon oil. 
  12. Season with salt and pepper. 
  13. Divide among bowls and serve.
