Roasted Sweet Potato & Garlic Soup

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

This recipe is from a free recipe book from Philadelphia Cheese upon the purchase of 3 products. I love soups and I love sweet potato (very diabetic friendly) so looking forward to winter to trying this.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 kg sweet potato (peeled and chopped)
  • 1 onion (roughly chopped)
  • 1 head garlic (broken into cloves and peeled)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 0.55 lb cream cheese (light cubed)
  • 14 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 14 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)
  • 6 teaspoons parsley (for garnish)
  • 6 slices ciabatta (or other crusty bread to serve)


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Toss the sweet potato, onion and garlic in oil.
  3. Place on a lined oven tray and bake in oven to bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until tender.
  4. Place the roasted vegetables in a large saucepan with stock and bring to the boil and then remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly and then blend with a stick blender in the pot or in batches in a food processor and return to the pot.

  6. Season to taste and serve in bowls and garnish with parsley and serve with crusty bread.

Really quite good and fast to make. I had a little kitchen disaster but it still worked out. I made only half the recipe, and put parchment paper in my baking tray because I could not find the foil. But I did not trim it quite enough - not a problem in the oven but a problem in the countertop - yes, putting out flames and hoping the smoke alarm does not go off I had to rinse the veggies but I think I had a little extra "fiber" in the soup. Anyway, I buzzed both before and after adding the cream cheese, made it incorporate better. Half the recipe was two generous servings for us.

Easy Easy kind of recipe. A delicious soup. If you are cooking for others and you are unsure of how much they like garlic....go easy. You can always add more later.
It was a success in our house....though I did feel a little guilty adding so much cream cheese.
