What's the soup?
I think it depends on context and application. What kind of soup? While a sweet potato would be totally incongruous in something like a white clam chowder, in a tomato-based veggie soup, it might actually be fresh and interesting, given its sweetness.
It's a spinach and zucchini soup -- veg broth based.
A good question for yourself is whether you would add carrots to this. Both would add sweetness not in line with the original soup. If sweet tones wouldn't bother you, then go ahead. But of the idea of carrots grosses you out in the soup, omit the sweet potato.
Also you could omit the white potato totally, or add some kind of grain.
Thank you! This particular recipe calls for all the ingredients to be blended in the end. I'll skip the grains this time but I like the idea for next time.
I think it would be fine
Sweet potatoes are of course sweet and are have a lot of fiber. The texture may be mealy. Personally I would not exchange sweet for white. And there are a lot of wonderful recipes specifically for sweet potatoes/yams that would be great.
I personally wouldn't exchange it but if u want to switch it up. Maybe butternut squash?
