How to Make Simple Sweet Potato Soup

How to Make Simple Sweet Potato Soup

Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m showing you how to make Simple Sweet Potato Soup This sweet potato soup recipe is really simple and easy to make. Itt has garlic and ginger to add some bold flavors and boy is it a heartwarming and healthy soup. Start by pouring 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil into a large pot over medium-high heat and then we’ll add in 1 white diced onion and start to saute this until it’s softened which will take about five to seven minutes. Then we’ll add in about 3 cloves of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger. You want to saute this for about a minute give it just a little bit of heat to allow them both to release some flavor. Then we’ll add in 2 pounds of diced sweet potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of white pepper so we don’t have those little black flakes and 4 cups of vegetable broth.

We’ll bring this to a boil. Let your sweet potatoes simmer for about 15 minutes or so until they are super soft. The amount of time it takes will depend on how small you cut your little pieces. Then you want to use a blender to blend this all up so you can transfer it to a regular blender or use a hand immersion blender. Last I like to add in 1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese which gives this soup some body and boy does it make it tasty. Once that cheese is melted that’s it! You are ready to eat! You can make it fancy and serve it up with a little swirl of cream or some sliced chives or you can eat it up just like this.


Sweet Potato Soup is a creamy bowl of comfort food goodness! It’s easy to make with the savory flavors of ginger and garlic. Add cheese to give the soup more body and flavor.
