Nicole’s CREAMY PUMPKIN & SWEET POTATO SOUP

Creamy Pumpkin & Sweet Potato Soup

Last pumpkin recipe…for the week, I promise! Hehe 😉 I obviously can’t get enough of it! And soups too. I love how you can make a big batch, refrigerate or freeze them, and they are always a good option.

Nicole’s CREAMY PUMPKIN & SWEET POTATO SOUP

Gluten Free – Dairy Free – Clean Eating – Paleo – High Fiber – Vegan Recipe

(4 servings)

Ingredients:

½ medium Organic Pumpkin

1 large Organic Sweet Potato

½ Yellow or White Onion

2 Garlic cloves

3 cups of Water

1 Tbsp Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

1 Anise Star

1 Cinnamon Stick

1 Tsp Salt

½ cup Organic Coconut Milk, canned/full fat (optional)

Roughly chop the onion and garlic, and put in a large pot on low/medium flame along with the coconut oil. Cook for 4-5 minutes until it softens up and becomes translucent. Add the cubed pumpkin and sweet potato, stir together, and cook for another 4-5 minutes. Add the water, anise star, cinnamon stick and 1 Tsp of salt. Cover, bring to boil, lower the flame and simmer for 30-35 minutes stirring occasionally.

When ready, let cool down for at least 10 minutes, remove the anise star and cinnamon stick, and puree in a food processor. I like to save about a cup of chunky pumpkin/sweet potatoes to mix in the puree for more of an earthy texture. At this point if you want a creamy finish, add the coconut milk and stir on low flame for 5 minutes. I like both versions, although it is recommended to include some fat in your sweet potato-containing meals if you want to enjoy the full beta-carotene benefits of this root vegetable.

Serve with a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. I LOVE to top it off with a bit of goat or Parmesan cheese as well, as it complements the flavor incredibly, although it won’t be Vegan or Paleo anymore. Enjoy it!
