Curried Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup


This creamy carrot and sweet potato soup is a delicious way to include some nourishing bone broth in your diet. The sweet potato makes for a naturally sweet and luxuriously creamy soup, while the curry powder and cayenne add some heat.

This soup is elegant enough to serve at the start of a holiday dinner, but simple enough to whip up for a weeknight meal.

The Players

The How-To

  1. In a large pot, melt the coconut oil. Add the leeks and carrots, stirring often. Cook until the leeks are soft and the carrots are fragrant, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, salt, curry powder, ginger and cayenne, stir for 2 to 3 minutes. Then add the sweet potato, coconut milk and chicken broth. Bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes or until the carrots are tender and the sweet potato is cooked through.
  3. Allow the soup to cool slightly. Puree with an immersion blender until smooth.
  4. Garnish with chives and red pepper flakes.

    Just made and the kids and I devoured this! So warm and yummy, without being heavy or too rich. Thanks!

    This was fabulous! My three kids slurped it down. Didn’t have leeks so I subbed scallions. Also just used a regular sweet tater. Definitely a keeper.

    This looks like a good soup, BUT. It would be great if people stopped sprinkling curry powder on every thing & calling it A curry or “curried”. It’s not. Curry powder does not equal curry. A curry refers to a particular kind of dish or a WAY of making the dish.
