Carrot Sweet Potato Ginger Soup ingredients
- Sweet potato: one medium to large sweet potato will work for this recipe. You can also use a regular white potato if you prefer.
- Carrots: you’ll need about 4 large carrots for this soup, or the equivalent of about 2 cups cut.
- Onion: a regular cooking onion. You can also substitute for 2 shallots if you prefer.
- Garlic: make sure to use fresh garlic, not powdered for this recipe.
- Ginger: this is the key ingredient to give this soup a cozy and warming effect. Make sure to use fresh ginger.
- Vegetable broth: I recommend using low-sodium broth so you can control how salty the soup turns out.
- Cayenne pepper: just a pinch for a little extra spice.
How to make Carrot Sweet Potato Soup
Peel and chop the sweet potatoes and carrots then toss them with 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil. Spread the vegetables onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 400 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes.
Sauteé the onions and garlic in the remaining avocado oil in a pot on medium-high heat, then add the grated ginger, sweet potatoes and carrots.
Add the broth and seasoning and bring to a light boil, then cover and let simmer for 10 minutes. Use an emulsion blender to blend the soup until smooth. (You can also use a regular blender if that’s what you have.)
How to store, freeze and reheat
Fridge: Store leftovers of this soup in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
Freezer: to freeze this sweet potato carrot soup, let the soup cool completely, then transfer it to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 2 months. To defrost the soup let thaw on the countertop or defrost in the microwave on the defrost setting.
- Roast the sweet potatoes and carrots. Rather than just adding them raw to the broth and letting them cook, make sure to roast the vegetables. This will give them a rich and caramelized flavour that will make the soup taste amazing.
- Use low-sodium broth. This will give you more control over how salty the soup is. You can always add more salt as needed.
- Add some yogurt or coconut milk on top. For a creamy and fresh taste, try adding a little bit of plain yogurt or coconut milk swirled on top of the soup.
