Donna Castellano of The Hanging Spoon shares her #52NewFoods inspired recipe, Creamy Sweet Potato Apple Soup.
Soup’s on! And it’s delicious. Not only because it’s packed with gorgeous colors, and some of our favorite fall flavors like apples and sweet potatoes, but also it’s super fun to personalize—with toppings! One of the tips I share in The 52 New Foods Challenge is to invite your kids to “add sprinkles” to their favorite dishes—sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and nori flakes are some of our top picks. Donna Castellano of The Hanging Spoon shows us how she puts this simple principle into practice at her family table, and the result is tasty fun.

Donna shows us how to make soup a little more fun for the kiddos–offer toppings!
Kids can have fun by adding toppings to the soup like pumpkin seeds, chopped apples, raisins, cranberries, nuts or croutons for some crunch. – The Hanging Spoon
