Melt the butter in a large, stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the celery and sauté for 5 more minutes until softened. Then add the garlic and cook a minute more.
Add sweet potatoes & vegetable stock. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, and simmer uncovered until the sweet potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.
Use an immersion blender to purée the soup or work in batches and purée the soup in a standing blender.
Add the Bolthouse Plant Protein Milk to the pureed sweet potato soup, and heat on medium until the soup is heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Top with shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, sour cream & sliced scallions.
