Creamy Sweet Potato Soup
Sweet potatoes, yams, and squash are some of the staple fall vegetables that are included in many seasonal dishes. While squash soup has a very similar concept to this recipe, this soup is a little sweeter and has more unique flavorings.
This soup recipe requires a little extra prep time, but once everything is ready to go, the cooking process is fairly smooth and simple.
4 Large Sweet Potatoes
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Medium Yellow Onion
2 Stalks of Celery
3 Garlic Cloves
1 Teaspoon Died Oregano
3/4 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
3 Cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock
14 Ounces Canned Coconut Milk
Additional Salt and Pepper
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prep your ingredients by finely chopping your onion and celery and cutting the sweet potatoes in half.
Step 2: Take your halved sweet potatoes and place them on a baking sheet on top of parchment paper. Brush the potatoes with cooking oil until they are fully coated.
Step 3: Bake the sweet potatoes for about 30 minutes. When they are done cooking, remove the skin from each of them. Then, mash them together in a bowl until smooth.
Step 4: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once melted, toss in 1 cup of your chopped onions and 1/2 cup of your chopped celery. Let this combination cook for 5 minutes while occasionally stirring throughout.
Step 5: After 5 minutes, grate up your garlic cloves into your saucepan. Then add in your oregano, ginger, cumin, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook these ingredients for 1 minute.
Step 6: Turn the heat to low as you pour in the chicken or vegetable stock and coconut milk. Continue stirring.
Step 7: Finally, add in your mashed sweet potatoes. Carefully mixed them in until they are thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper.
Step 8: Serve and enjoy.
