This is a soup that mixes all the weirdness that I am about. I am from Canada, live in the South, and am a citizen of the world. This is a soup that encompasses all of that: Simple and pure, nutritious and fun. The sweet potatoes show the kinship between my Southern home and the continent of Africa, a vital part of our world community. That sweet potato can become a little treasure of nutrition to empower, while the maple gives a little beautiful Canadian smile that everyone loves. It’s also easy as pie, so get cooking.
