Instructions

Bake Sweet Potato:

  • Warm oven to 450 degrees. Pierce a few form holes in the sweet potato and bake for 40-60 minutes, or until sticky-sweet and tender. (For a quicker soup, you can peel, dice and boil the potato, or cook, skin on, in the microwave.)

Blending:

  • Add to blender: sweet potato flesh, broth, optional non-dairy milk, garlic, maple, lime, chipotle powder. Blend from low to high until smooth. Salt to taste.
  • To warm soup, turn your blender on the ‘soup’ setting. Serve directly from the blender --- OR To warm and remove air bubbles, pour soup into a soup pot and simmer on medium for 5-10 minutes until reduced and air bubbles removed.
  • Pour soup into serving bowls.
  • Top with diced avocado, chips, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, sprinkle of smoky paprika and chopped cilantro. Enjoy!
