Sweet Potato Bisque

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Sweet Potato Bisque

Straight from Anova Culinary | Serves: 2-4 | Time: ~2 hrs


2 medium #SweetPotatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices

1 cup diced leeks, white part only

1 cup vegetable stock

3 Tbsp unsalted butter

1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger

1 clove garlic, minced

1 bay leaf


1 cup heavy cream (I used almond milk)

(I added toasted pecans and some diced green onion)


Set sous vide to 185°F (85°C).

Combine the sweet potatoes, leeks, stock, butter, ginger, garlic, and bay leaf in a large zipper lock bag. Season with salt and pepper. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique and place in the water bath. Set the timer for 1 1/2 hours.

When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Discard the bay leaf. Transfer entire contents of the bag to a blender and add the cream. Puree until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add additional stock or cream to reach desired consistency.

Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. (I served with toasted pecans and some chopped green onion).
