Recipe Comix: Hearty Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup

"Draw us a recipe." That's the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists; each week, we're thrilled to present what they sent back. The resulting works of art are fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above—and they prove that a recipe doesn't just have to be words on paper.

This week's comic was penned by Lisa Hanawalt, a Brooklyn-based illustrator whose work has been featured in The Hairpin, The New York Times, McSweeneys and New York Magazine. She shares with us her recipe for a hearty sausage and sweet potato soup, which is so versatile it can make use of everything from kale to parmesan rinds to (if you have the technology) tiny clones.
