Ingredients

For the Soup

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil - or substitute olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium yellow onion - peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric root
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 large sweet potatoes - peeled and diced
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 14.5 oz can coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For Garnish

  • 1 cup toasted cashews - chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro - roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the sweet potatoes and sauté for 3-5 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Add the onion and the remaining tablespoon of oil, and continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes until softened. Then, sprinkle garam masala, turmeric, cumin, and garlic powder over the vegetables and sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant.
  • Add the vegetable broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Cover the pot, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Transfer the soup to a countertop blender and purée, being careful not to let the steam blow the top off the blender.
  • Pour the coconut milk and salt into the blender and pulse until well combined. Taste and add salt as needed.
  • Transfer to a bowl and serve. Garnish with cashews and fresh cilantro.

NOTES

Storage Info:
Store the Vegan Sweet Potato Soup in an airtight container or a mason jar in the refrigerator, where it will stay good for up to 5 days. If you choose to freeze it in a mason jar, make sure to leave some space at the top for expansion. Store it this way for up to 3 months.
When ready to eat, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. To reheat, simply warm the soup in a saucepan over medium heat until hot. Stir it occasionally. If the soup has thickened in storage, you may add a little water or vegetable broth to adjust its consistency.

    Flavourful and creamy. I was worried because the recipe didn’t come for salt. But there is so much flavour it’s amazing. Thank you.

    Hi Linda, I made this soup today and followed your recipe. It was AMAZING!!!!! I loved the fact your recipe commands to saute the sweet potatoes first. I added the coconut oil when the potatoes where almost done and left it if a low-medium for another 10 minutes and then blended and let is simmer for another 5-10 minutes. It was so delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  3. Made this today, following the instructions up until it started boiling. Then I left it to simmer all day in the crockpot. It was really, really good.

  4. This looks delicious and I’d love to try it out! I was just wondering…my son has a nut allergy, could I simply omit the cashews or should I substitute it for something else? Thanks for any input you might have! 🙂

      1. Why would the soup be ‘thin’ if the cashew topping is omitted? Are some of the cashews supposed to be pureed with the vegetable mixture? Please clarify. Also, have you tried roasting the onion, sweet potatoes and seasonings instead of sweating them in dutch oven? Just wondering how to best enhance the flavor.

      2. Hi Terry, I’m not sure why the comment of the soup being thin as the cashews are optional topping. None are to be pureed. I have not tried toasting those, but you can give it a go and let us know how it works out.
