Microwave Steam n' Mash Cut Sweet Potatoes according to package
directions; set aside. Heat oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Add
leek and carrot and saute until they begin to soften, about 4 to 5
minutes. Stir in broth, sweet potatoes, and 1 tablespoon minced ginger.
Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Transfer the soup to a blender and process until smooth; in batches if
necessary. Return the soup to the pot and reheat; adjust seasoning with
salt and pepper. Just before serving, stir in remaining 1 teaspoon
minced ginger. Ladle soup into bowls, and serve with a large dollop of
yogurt. Garnish with cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
