Equipment

  • 1 pot
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 immersion blender

Ingredients

For the Sweet Potato Carrot Soup

  • 2 lbs medium-sized sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 3 medium carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 cups vegetable broth For a non-vegan version, you may use chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¾ cup canned coconut milk (you may replace it with drinkable full-fat coconut milk which contains less fat, but the soup won't be as creamy. If you aren't on a dairy-free/vegan diet, you may use half-and-half, heavy cream, sour cream, or Greek yogurt instead).
  • Salt & ground black pepper to taste

For the Toppings:

  • Croutons optional
  • Coconut milk
  • Microgreens or fresh basil leaves, chopped green onions, or chives

Instructions

  • Heat a large pot over medium heat and then add the olive oil.
  • Once the oil has heated, add the onion and cook until translucent. Then add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute, stirring once and a while.
  • Stir in the bay leaf, cumin, dried parsley, salt, and pepper to combine.
  • Add the sweet potatoes, carrots, and vegetable broth and cover the pot with a lid.
  • Let the mixture come to a boil, then remove the lid and lower the heat to medium-low.Simmer for 25 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
  • Blend the soup until smooth using an immersion blender. Alternatively, use a kitchen blender!
  • Blend or whisk in the coconut milk until homogeneous.
  • Serve the sweet potato and carrot soup with fresh micro greens, croutons, and an extra drizzle of coconut milk.

Recipe Notes

How to Store, Freeze and Reheat 
Store sweet potato soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
Creamy soups can be tricky to freeze because most of the time they contain dairy or alike that break apart once thawed and reheated. But you can freeze this soup in batches by leaving the coconut milk out. After blending it, let it cool, and freeze it in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months.
Defrost it in the fridge and reheat it in a saucepan over low heat until warm, and then whisk in the coconut milk very well until homogeneous.
