Vegan Sweet Potato Soup

Saturday, 18 October 2014 00:00  by Emily S.

Sweet potato season is in full swing, which gives us the freshest produce to create a delicious sweet potato soup. This creamy vegan soup is an excellent way for all women to get essential nutrients for good physical, emotional and mental health such as vitamin A, vitamin C and copper.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp grape seed oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 lb sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 small apple, peeled and diced
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • ½ cup lite coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to season

Directions:

Heat the grape seed oil in a pot over medium high heat. Add the onions, ginger, curry powder, sweet potato and apple, seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook contents for five minutes, stirring continuously.

Add the thyme and vegetable stock to the pot. Bring contents to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Allow everything to cook until the vegetables are tender. This will take approximately 30 minutes. Remove the thyme sprigs and use an immersion blender or food processor to puree the soup until smooth. You can reserve some of the sweet potato and apple for garnish if you choose.

Finish the soup by stirring in the coconut milk and maple syrup. Check seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
