Sweet Potato Soup With Feta and Zaatar Oil
By calendar standards, we've finally made it to Springtime... but that doesn't mean the winter weather's ready to abate. For these last lingering days of cozy blankets and warm comfort foods, Food52 suggests an easy fix: sweet potato soup with a dash of Mediterranean zaatar oil and a sprinkling of fresh feta to make it fancy!
One of the things we like best about this recipe is how lauren takes a few simple ingredients, adds a couple of exotic touches and manages to produce a dish that's both comforting and thrilling at the same time. The soup itself is silky and hearty, the sweetness of the potatoes tempered by the aromatics; a finishing swirl of zaatar oil (zaatar is a Mediterranean seasoning typically containing sesame seeds, thyme, oregano and salt) and a sprinkling of crumbled feta elevate the soup to sophistication.
