Sinfully Satisfying Sweet Potato Soup (Whole30 Recipe)

 

img_8698

I can’t even sum up all of my emotions triggered from this soup. I’ve never made a bisque without heavy cream, but coconut milk is just as much of a wow factor. It still adds a subtle flavor that’s not overwhelming. I am also still on cloud 9 after buying an immersion blender, so be prepared for some squash curry kale soup coming up. I added carrots for more color and substance, and the flavors of the sweet potatoes stand on their own, but both the carrots and sweet potato add a natural sweetness that you can’t imitate. This Sweet Potato Bisque will be a lunch and dinner staple this week.

Ingredients (serves 6).

  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 2 t light olive oil
  • 1 t minced garlic
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 large sweet potatoes, washed, peeled and chopped
  • 4 c homemade vegetable broth
  • Sea salt and pepper to take to taste
  • 1 c–mix of cream + milk–unsweetened full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 c extra cream from full-fat canned coconut milk (optional)
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • Toppings: pinch of unsweetened coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, extra cayenne and/or coconut milk to garnish

Directions.

  1. In a large pot, sauté onions with garlic in hot oil over medium heat.
  2. Add carrots and sweet potatoes and briskly sauté for 30-60 sec.
  3. Pour vegetable stock over potatoes and carrots and bring soup to a boil. Once boiling, cover and simmer 15 min until veggies are tender and you’re able to easily pierce with a fork. Remove soup from heat and allow to cool slightly to purée.
  4. Using an immersion blender, food processor or blender, purée soup until smooth. Fold in coconut milk and coconut cream.
  5. Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste.
  6. Garnish with coconut flakes and enjoy!
