Roasted Sweet Potato & Onion Soup

This sweet potato soup is hearty and filling. You can blend it into a creamy texture or keep it a thick chunky consistency, either way it will taste great and fill you up.  Here is the recipe.

Roasted Sweet Potato & Onion Soup

Ingredients:

  • 6 sweet potatoes peeled and cut into small chunks. About 8 cups.
  • 1 large red onion cut into medium size pieces.
  • 6-8 cloves garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 tbsp herbs of your choice. I like to use Herbs de Provence.
  • 1 carton vegetable broth (about 5 cups) plus 2 cups water
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 375.  In a mixing bowl mix sweet potatoes and onions with 2 tbsp olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender, tossing around every 15 minutes. After 45 minutes, take out of oven and set aside.

Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a pan and saute garlic until tender. Add roasted sweet potato and onions. At this point you can seve this as a side-dish if you like.

To make the soup add 2 cups water plus 1 carton broth to the sweet potatoes, add herbs, and cook for 15 minutes.

Turn the stove off and using a hand-blender blend the soup into a creamy consistency. Soup is ready. Serve with parmesan shavings, or with a drizzle of olive oil.

  1. Your Sweet Potato and Onion Soup looks very good and I would definitely give it a try. But regarding the sweet potato I have a question for you. Are you using the yams,red sweet potato or white sweet potato are ok to use? Just curious to know.

    1. Hi Devi, I am only familiar with orange sweet potatoes, they have a red outer skin and orange flesh inside. I am sure you could use any sweet potato, but from what I know yams are not sweet potatoes, they are a different vegetable. I would not use yams in this soup though. Hope this helps.
