Sweet Potato Soup

Sweet Potato Soup

Now that Autumn is here, it's the perfect time to make the most of the bounty of sweet potatoes, winter squash and pumpkins that are in every grocery store and farmer's market.

Sweet potato is one of the most healing vegetables we have available to us. They help to lower blood pressure and reduce stress. They are one of the best anti-cancer foods, and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers.

Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. 

And to top it all off, they taste delicious! Especially in this quick and easy healing recipe. It's perfect for dinner, and pairs wonderfully with a big fresh salad of leafy greens, juicy bell pepper, tomato, cucumber and avocado with a squeeze of orange juice.


  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed 
  • 2 cloves of garlic 
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced 
  • 1/2 an inch of fresh ginger root 
  • A pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom and/or sea salt and pepper 
  • Optional topping: coconut or cashew cream and/or rosemary, thyme or parsley (leave out coconut or cashew cream if fat-free)


  1. Steam the sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, and ginger until soft (about 45 minutes). 
  2. While still hot, transfer to a blender with 1 cup of the steaming liquid. Blend until smooth and creamy. 
  3. If needed you can add a little more of remaining steaming liquid to create the consistency desired for your soup. 
  4. Optionally sprinkle seasoning to taste, and top with fresh herbs such as parsley, rosemary, or thyme and a dollop of coconut or cashew cream (if using).
