Soups are such wonderful comfort food for the mind, body, and soul. They can be made complex or simple, (yet no less the flavorful!) such as with this easy and creamy vegan sweet potato soup recipe. It is vibrant, nourishing, and made with just a handful of healthy, wholesome ingredients. You often see sweet potato soups made with warming spices which greatly enhance the natural sweetness of the sweet potato, but in this case, I prefer adding rich, savory spices which allows the sweet potato to speak for itself and only be subtly enhanced. It’s delicious served alongside a vegan casserole or some crusty bread. I think it’s perfect, and I hope you think so, too!

🍲 Ingredients

Sweet potatoes (of course!) are the most important ingredient in this dish. Pick nice firm, unblemished sweet potatoes for the best results.

Garlic and ginger are the other stars of the show here. While onion is commonplace in soup recipes, I find omitting it to provide a greater depth of flavor in this dish.

The spices enhance the sweet potatoes but do not overpower the dish at all. Full fat coconut milk adds that lush creaminess.

All in all there is a lovely and delicate dance of flavors in this vibrant soup.
