Sweet Potato Soup Two Ways

Save

Fall is a season that just screams comfort from every direction. When cooler temperatures begin to roll in, it's a delightful time of year to get busy in the kitchen. That's where this Creamy Sweet Potato Soup comes in. Full of flavor, silky smooth, and loaded with vitamin-packed sweet potatoes, this soup is an all around winner. If you want to add an extra kick, we've included directions for a curried apple version as well.

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup

Things You'll Need

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 stems fresh rosemary
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Step 1

Peel sweet potatoes and chop them into 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside.

Step 2

Peel and dice onion, garlic and apples (if making curried apple version), set aside. Add olive oil and butter to a large stockpot over medium heat. Add in the onions and cook, stirring frequently, for 15 minutes or until soft.

Step 3

Add the sweet potatoes, garlic, vegetable stock, water, rosemary, salt, and pepper and stir well to combine. Bring mixture to a boil and simmer for 40 minutes. Remove pan from heat, discard rosemary stems, and cool for 10 minutes.

Step 4

Using a food processor or blender, puree the soup in batches, pulsing until completely smooth.

Warning

  • Remove the center cap from your blender lid and cover the empty space with a tall cup instead. Hold the cup down securely when blending. This allows some of the steam to escape and helps prevent the blender lid from popping off.

Tip

  • If you don't own a blender or food processor, you can do this step using an immersion blender.

Step 5

Serve soup warm. Top it with shaved Parmesan cheese, toasted walnuts and extra black pepper for a super savory approach.

Step 4

Serve soup warm. I recommend topping it with chopped apples and crumbled bacon. And, for a very sweet version, top with an extra splash of maple syrup and a dash of cinnamon.

Tip

  • For an extra creamy version stir in 1/2 cup of cream right after blending.
