In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Add in sweet potatoes, carrots, stock, cinnamon, and paprika. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Check at the 20 minute mark and your sweet potatoes should be very tender. If not cook for another 5 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Using a blender or food processor, purée the mixture. You can add additional stock while blending if the mixture is to thick. Return mixture to the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve immediately while it's hot. This dish is great served with a grilled cheese sandwich.
Enjoy! Make sure you tag #DinnerWithTayo, I would love to see your dish.
