Loaded Sweet Potato Soup

Loaded Sweet Potato Soup REcipe

I used to love making potato soup, clam chowder and other potato based soups and stews. Now that we don’t eat white potatoes very often, I hadn’t made any of them in years. I found my old recipe when I was cleaning out my cabinets, and decided to try a sweet potato version.

I used winter squash to take the sweetness down a notch, and the sweet and salty flavors in this soup go really well together. If you are a potato soup person, try it!

A filling and nutritious sweet potato based soup.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium to large winter squash or pumpkin
  • 3-4 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil or butter
  • 2 onions
  • 1 quart chicken broth or stock (homemade if possible)
  • 2 cups coconut milk (or water)
  • 1 pound of meat of choice: leftover chicken, sausage, ground beef or bacon all work
  • Optional garnishes: crumbled bacon, cheese, chopped green onions

Instructions

  1. Peel and chop the squash and sweet potatoes.
  2. In a large pot, boil at least 2 quarts of water and add the chopped squash and sweet potatoes. Cook until fork tender and remove.
  3. Let cool slightly. Using a blender, hand blender of food processor, blend half of the cooked squash/sweet potatoes with the broth, coconut milk and spices until smooth and return it to the pot.
  4. Add the other half of the cooked squash/sweet potatoes.
  5. In a large skillet, brown the meat you are using if not already cooked (I like ground sausage) and add to pot when cooked.
  6. Thinly slice onions and cook in the skillet with coconut oil or butter if needed until soft. Add to pot.
  7. Cook bacon in skillet if using for a garnish.
  8. Heat pot on low heat until ingredients are mixed and warmed.
  9. Serve with optional garnishes (crumbled bacon, cheese, green onions, etc) and a side salad.
