Recipe: Sweet Potato Soup with a Twist


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional garnishes: chopped fresh cilantro, toasted coconut flakes


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened and slightly caramelized, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the diced sweet potatoes, diced apple, ground cumin, and ground cinnamon. Cook for 2-3 minutes, allowing the spices to toast and the flavours to meld together.
