Spicy Sausage, Sweet Potato Soup – Low Carb, Gluten Free, Paleo

SPICY SAUSAGE, SWEET POTATO SOUP
The pictures simply cannot do this soup justice.  I know it looks rather unappealing, but I promise you it tastes amazing.  Sausage and sweet potato is becoming one of my favorite combinations.  I love the savory taste of the sausage, combined with the sweet flavor of the sweet potatoes.  This is a great soup to make ahead of time and freeze for later.  I recommend reheating it on the stove top.
