Yum, it’s time for the comforting foods of fall. If sweet potato’s are on your list of tasty foods, you’re going to love this recipe.

Warming Sweet Potato-Broccoli Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oilimg_9729-225x300
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 5 cups chicken bone broth (or vegetable broth for a vegan version)
  • 1 head broccoli, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Directions:

On medium heat, melt the coconut oil in a large pan, then add the onion and garlic with a pinch of sea salt. Cook, stirring often, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the sweet potato and broth and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until sweet potato is almost tender, about 20 minutes.

Add the broccoli, and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the soup, lemon juice, turmeric and cinnamon to a high-speed blender and process on high until silky smooth. If the soup is too thick, add a little water to thin it out.

Return the soup to a pan and warm gently. Add sea salt and black pepper, to taste. Adjust seasonings if need be.
