PIN Creamy healthy fall vegan sweet potato soup
Ohhhh the sweet potato soup recipe of 1000 FACES.
Which only makes sense to you if you live in my kitchen, which you don’t, so you’re probably just sitting there scratching your cute little noggin’ wonderin’ what I’m talking about.
But, sometimes, even my own taste buds get it wrong. They think they know WHAT IS UP and that flavor combo XYZ is going to make the best, most YUMMIEST slow cooker sweet potato soup. And then they actually taste it.
Holy whoa, slow your rolllll Taylor. That was just TOO much going on, and the chipotle hit ya with a POW of not-so-good-spiciness-cannot-taste-anything-else-for-the-rest-of-the-day-kinda BADNESS.
Then there was PEANUT BUTTER COCONUT TERIYAKI (???) with CUCUMBER NOODLES.
Do not even know why I thought that would be good. We’ll just leave that over there.
F-I-N-A-L-L-Y we landed on this COZY bowl of fall B-L-I-S-S with creamy notes of sweet potato, spicy cinnamon and ginger with a little naturally-sweet and FRESH ‘n fruity apple and that velvety-smooooth swirl of creamy coconut milk and maple syrup.
Wiiiith a pinch of cumin to balance it allll out so your mouth doesn’t feel like it’s slurpin’ on a healthy SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE.
Also, the sequel: cumin roasted almonds might just be your new favorite snack because they are just SO SIMPLE 3-ingredients-kinda-good, but are gonna make your texture-freak self VRY excited about eating a bowl of soup.
So, liiike, make extra to feed your snacking mouth, mmkay?
One almond for the soup, three for Y-O-U. Rep-EAT.
Besides being totally fall-appropriate and hitting all the texture marks – creamy! Crunchy! Crispy! – you’re going to get really excited when you realize that choosing to eat healthy sweet potato soup is basically like pressing the EASY BUTTON on your dinner life.
HOLY friends could not get ANY simpler.
Well, maybe if you bought it. But then you wouldn’t be the ultra-successful-kitchen-MASTER that I know lives inside you.

- Add in your chicken broth, spices and a little swirl of creamy almond butter.
