Curried Sweet Potato Soup (Dairy Free)
I’m also enjoying cooking with my instant pot and making weekly batches of bone broth even as it’s getting ridiculously hot in Arizona. I’m still trying to drink bone broth every day to improve my gut health and thus my immune system. Thankfully I don’t have to heat the house up when I cook in my instant pot, so then as long as I blast the AC when I drink the broth it all works out ok.
Drinking bone broth can get a little old after 6 months, so I love finding soup, curry, and other recipes to mix it in so that I still feel motivated to drink it. And if you know me you know I’m easily motivated by curry, so that’s where this comes in. A creamy, coconut-milk based soup with everything you love about curry and sweet potatoes combined? Sign me up.
And if you’re trying to spend quarantine time working on skills other than cooking, you’re in for a treat. This Curried Sweet Potato Soup is stupid easy—probably the easiest soup recipe I’ve ever made. Lunchables probably take more effort to put together than this soup. And obviously sweet potato soup is way better for you.
I like my Sweet Potato Soup with bone broth like I mentioned, but you can easily make a vegan curried soup if you use vegetable stock. And if you only have regular chicken or beef broth those work too! No strict rules here.
Tips for making Paleo Sweet Potato Soup:
- Use the good full fat coconut milk!
- You can make this soup vegan by using vegetable stock.
