Are sweet potatoes the best food ever? I ask myself this question on a daily basis because I'm never not in the mood to eat sweet potatoes in some form. You can do so many things with them – savory, sweet, spicy. You can turn them into hash browns or oven roast them or throw them into a casserole. Anything, literally anything is possible.
Considering the fact that 3 of the blog's all-time most popular recipes are sweet potato-centric, I have a feeling you guys are gonna love this one pot sweet potato soup.
Another reason I think you'll like it? It all comes together in one pot! That's what we like around here – easy, wholesome, and always tasty.
Here's how it goes – sauté onions, garlic, and miso paste (optional) for maximum savory flavor base, add broth and boil the sweet potatoes, add seasonings, cook 20-25 minutes, blend and enjoy. From start to finish, you have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes and you have a total of 3 dirty dishes – a pot, a spoon, and a blender.
Speaking of, let's talk blenders for a minute. Do you have an immersion blender? Have you ever used one of these magical little things? For recipes like this, they come in SO handy. You can puree the soup without ever pouring it into another vessel and you don't have to allow it to cool like you would in a traditional blender. You just dip the immersion blender into the pot, take it for a spin, and voila – smooth, creamy soup! They're also super easy to clean AND you can get one delivered via Amazon for about $30. 💪💪💪
Immersion blender or no immersion blender, this soup is still incredibly easy to make. I recommend making a big batch of this one pot sweet potato soup to have for dinner tonight. Leftovers will stay good in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, or you can store in gallon bags and freeze for later enjoyment!Print
