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
- 1 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 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
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.
