    1. For the soup, heat olive oil in a large pot oven over medium heat. Add onions, celery and garlic. Reduce heat to medium low and sauté onion mixture until softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add ginger, ground coriander and brown sugar. Sauté for another minute until fragrant.
    2. Add broth, potatoes, sweet potatoes, salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to a constant simmer and cover with lid slightly ajar. Cook until all veggies are very tender, about 20-25 minutes.
    3. Transfer soup to KitchenAid® Torrent™ Magnetic Drive Blender. Process on the “Soup” setting. If soup is too thick add a bit more chicken broth to thin. Taste and add more salt and pepper, if needed.
    4. For the topping, combine Greek yogurt, milk and grated ginger in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
    5. Ladle soup into bowls. For garnish, spoon drops of yogurt mixture (Greek yogurt thinned out with a little milk) over the surface of the soup. Swirl with a toothpick. Add a sprinkle of poppy seeds, if desired. If you want to keep the soup totally dairy-free, omit the topping and just garnish with poppy seeds or finely chopped cilantro.
