Units Scale
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp oil (such as olive)
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can light coconut milk (from a can)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Cilantro, to garnish


  1. Prepare ingredients by dicing the onion, cubing the sweet potatoes, and mincing the garlic.
  2. Add oil and diced onion to a large pot. Sauté onions for 2-3 minutes. Add minced garlic and cubed sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes. Add vegetable broth, light coconut milk, and spices to the pot. Stir together. 
  3. Bring ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat to low-medium and cook, partially covered, for 20 minutes. 
  4. After, remove pot from the stove. Use a handheld immersion blender to blend all ingredients into a creamy soup. Alternatively, pour the ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend into a creamy soup. 
  5. Pour the soup into bowls and garnish with cilantro. 


  • Got leftovers? Allow the soup to cool to room temperature. Then, transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
