For years I have worked on a Butternut Squash soup recipe and have never been able to get it just how I wanted. So, recently I decided to work on a Sweet Potato Soup recipe and NAILED IT! It is everything I always wanted from my other attempts.

I wanted it to taste like a bowlful of AUTUMN.

This soup is the perfect mix of sweet and savory. It will give you all the feels.


Start by sauteing the onions and carrots.

Then add in onion, apple, celery and garlic and sauté for another couple of minutes.

Mix in seasonings, broth and coconut milk.

Turn heat to high and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer until veggies are soft.

Use an immersion blender till desired smoothness. **If you don’t have an immersion blender just do it in batches in your regular blender.

Salt and pepper to taste.

The toppings are EVERYTHING! Put out SOUR CREAM (I thin it a little with milk or water) PEPITAS (or pumpkin seeds), CILANTRO and RED PEPPER FLAKES.
