Expert Tips

  • Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta carotene, an antioxidant which is converted into vitamin A by the body. Major food sources of vitamin A and beta-carotene include carrots, pumpkin, spinach, cantaloupe, red bell peppers, apricots and collard greens.
  • Sprinkle each serving with oyster crackers or fish-shaped Cheddar crackers.
  • For a heartier chowder, add 1 cup Frozen Sweet Peas, thawed, with the milk.
  • Complement this sweet soup with crisp breadsticks and a fresh fruit salad garnished with mint.
