With the fall weather finally settling in, I have been inspired to start cooking all of my fall favorites. For me, fall food is all about seasonal produce and comforting foods. I love making soup and serving it will simple crusty bread. Cooking with root vegetables and lots of herbs is one of my favorite combinations. This soup was made on a night where the weather was just starting to drop and I wanted a big plant based bowl of nutrition.

This recipe is crazy low in calories. Only 234 per 4 cup serving! Serve this one alongside bread or a sandwich. 


RECIPE

SIMPLE VEGAN SWEET POTATO SOUP

Ingredients:

  • 5 Cups of Water
  • 3 Cups of Yellow Squash (Yellow Zucchini or Acorn Squash work as well)
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes (about 4-5 Cups)
  • 1 Stalk of Celery
  • 2 Cubes of "Not Chick'n" Bouillon
  • 1 Cup Canned Coconut Milk
  • 2 Tsp Pink Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Thyme (fresh or ground)
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Sage

Instructions:

  1. In a large pot, place water and turn heat on high.
  2. Cube up the sweet potato into 1 to 2 inch pieces. Place in water.
  3. Add in the bouillon cubes, the salt, and the thyme.
  4. Slice up the celery and add to pot.
  5. Cube up the Yellow Squash into 2 inch pieces and add to pot.
  6. At this point, everything should be boiling. Lower the heat to a simmer and partially cover the pot. Allow the soup to simmer for 30 minutes.
  7. After 30 minutes, uncover and add coconut milk and sage.
  8. Everything should be very soft at this point. Take an immersion blender and blend the soup until it is smooth and creamy.
  9. Taste for salt and add more if needed.
  10. To serve, top with fresh ground pepper and sage sprigs. This soup goes great with a simple piece of toasted bread spread with coconut oil.
