What Makes This Recipe So Good
- It comes together in under 30 minutes! This restaurant-quality meal can be thrown together in the comfort of your own home in just three simple steps. Adding this creamy soup to your weeknight dinner rotation is a no-brainer!
- It strikes the perfect balance between savory with just a hint of natural sweetness. Sweet potatoes and a single Granny Smith apple balance out the savory flavors in this dinner recipe. I love topping my soup off with a handful of salty roasted seeds and/or croutons for an extra savory bite – yum!
- It’s velvety smooth and oh-so creamy! This veggie-packed soup tastes indulgent, but won’t leave you feeling weighed down. I love making a big batch of this sweet potato soup for my family when we’re craving something comforting, yet nutritious.
Sweet Potatoes – Sweet potatoes come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Though don’t let this decision overwhelm you, since any type of sweet potato will work in this soup! I’ve made this recipe with both jewel and garnet sweet potatoes, and both tasted equally as delicious. To prep the potatoes for this recipe, start by giving them a good scrub in the sink. Once clean, remove the skin with a paring knife or vegetable peeler before chopping both sweet potatoes into cubes.
Curry Powder – This delicious spice blend adds a delightful aromatic touch to this root vegetable soup! With a comforting blend of spices, curry powder makes this recipe that much more wholesome and delicious. Feel free to up the spice, by adding an extra teaspoon of curry powder to this recipe if you’d like!
- If you don’t have an immersion blender, simply use a blender to puree this soup instead. However, when using a blender, leave your soup to cool for at least 15-20 minutes before blending. Sealing super hot ingredients into a blender is extremely hazardous and potentially harmful!
- To make this sweet potato soup vegan and/or gluten-free, sub the heavy cream for full fat coconut milk! This soup is one of those meals that’s easily customizable to a variety of diets. And the best part is, it’s a total crowd-pleaser – regardless of dietary restrictions!
- Top your soup with a little something crunchy for an exciting bite. Soup crackers are classic and taste incredible atop this creamy soup. Though for an even healthier topping, use roasted pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds instead!
