Heat the olive oil in a large deep saucepan over high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and sauté until the mushroom is slightly browned and the onion is translucent.

Add the wine and let it simmer for 3 more minutes. Add the sweet potato, stock, thyme, lemon zest and bay leaf. Let it boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove the bay leaf and using a bar mix blend the soup to a smooth consistency. You may need to add extra hot water to achieve the right consistency. If you don’t have a bar mix transfer the soup to a food processor to blend.

Return the soup to the heat and warm through. Season with salt and pepper if desired and garnish with lemon zest or thyme.
