Sweet potato soup

IMAG0360

There is nothing I love more than hot soup when I am sick or really anytime during the winter. This creamy sweet potato soup tastes like a dessert without any added dairy or sugar!

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small shallot, chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter NOTE: You can substitute coconut or olive oil to make this dairy-free/vegan
  • 1 lb sweet potato( about 4 sweet potatoes)
  • 5 cups chicken stock NOTE: You can also substitute vegetable broth to make this vegetarian/vegan
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger

Directions:

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat and add the chopped onion and shallot.
  2. Sautee the onion and shallot until they turn translucent(about 5 mins).
  3. Add the sweet potatoes and toss to coat with the cooked onions.
  4. Add the stock/broth and spices(nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger) and stir to combine.
  5. Bring the soup to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are very tender and can easily be pierced with a fork.
  6. remove the soup from the heat and blend with a hand blender or in a food processor/blender. NOTE: If you do this in a food processor/regular blender you may need to do this in batches and you will want to wait until the soup cools a bit( about 20-30mins)

Servings: 5 Serving Size: 1.5 cups
