This warming and satisfying soup comes together quickly—and seems to disappear just as fast! For the most velvety texture, use a traditional blender to purée the soup, but don’t fill the jar more than half full.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste
2 1/2 pounds red-skinned sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large dice
4 cups low-soduim chicken or vegetable broth
1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
Juice of 1 small lime
Fresh cilantro leaves, for garnish
In soup pot or large saucepan, sauté onion in olive oil until translucent, about 8 minutes. Add ginger, cumin, cayenne, and salt; stir 1 minute. Add sweet potatoes and stir to coat. Stir in broth and coconut milk and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, 15–20 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender.
Working in batches, purée soup in blender until smooth (an immersion blender will yield a more rustic purée). Return soup to pot, stir in lime juice, and season with additional salt, if desired. Serve, garnished with cilantro leaves.
