Sweet Potato Soup

A simple and quick nourishing fall soup that is rich and satisfying.

1 tbsp coconut oil

1 large onion, diced

1 stalk celery, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp grated ginger

1 tsp. turmeric

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

3 carrots, sliced in chunks

4 cups water or broth

1 can coconut milk

salt and pepper to taste

Toasted pumpkin seeds, as garnish

Cilantro (optional) as garnish

Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat and saute vegetables until onions are limp, about 5 minutes stirring occasionally. Add broth or water to cover, bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer covered until veggies are tender.

Blend in pot with an immersion blender or transfer in batches to a blender. Add coconut milk, adjust seasonings, heat and serve.

Serves 6.
