I have never made sweet potato soup until few weeks ago. Sweet potato reminds me of baby food: it was one of the first vegetables I introduced to my kids. They loved their sweet potato soup purées and once grown up, I didn’t think of making it again. Actually, I have never made a potato soup before. I add some potatoes to my soup but it was not the main ingredients. I was a bit skeptical when I tried the recipe but I wanted to give it a try. I love making soups and I am always looking for new soup ideas. Eating the same soup over and over is boring.

Curried Sweet Potato Soup: An Easy Healthy Recipe for Fall

The following recipe is inspired from the book Soups and Stews. This book is a staple in my kitchen. It is worth the $21 I paid for. I tried many of its recipes and they were so good. Some recipes are easier than others but you go with the ones you are comfortable with.
- 1 TBPS of vegetable oil
- 1 large onion chopped
- 2 garlic cloves crushed. You can use ready to use garlic paste but the flavor is not as good as fresh garlic.
- 3 TBSP of curry powder. I replaced it with the Blue Dragon Curry Paste.
- 2 pounds of sweet potato, peeled and cubed.
- 4 cups of chicken stock.
- 1 apple peeled, cored and grated
- 125 ml of coconut cream. I didn’t add this ingredient as I did not have it on hand but the sweet potato soup turned out good enough for me.
Make this easy healthy recipe:
- In a large pan, add oil and heat.
- Add onions and let it cook until it becomes very soft. Make sure to supervise so it does not burn.
- Add the garlic and curry powder and stir.
- Add the sweet potato, stock, and let it simmer for 30 minutes.
- Process it in your food processor. Make sure to let it cool before as you don’t want to get burned.
- Return to the pan and heat.
- If you are using the coconut cream, add it but don’t let it boil.
It can be served with your favorite bread, pita. My daughter loved it so much that I added it to her lunch box. She enjoyed it with some crackers and cheese on the side.
