Sweet Potato and Onion Soup

Sweet Potato and Onion Soup created by Peter J

This simple recipe uses the sweet potato with its distinctive flavour and colour as the base for a delicious soup with a hint of orange and coriander. Taken from "What's Cooking : Potatoes" The recipe calls for the soup to be pureed, and the addition of yoghurt. I don't do this as we prefer chunky soups, so in fact, I stop at the end of Step 4! I squeezed fresh oranges for the orange juice.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan and add the diced sweet potatoes and carrot, sliced onions and garlic.
  • Saute gently for five minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Pour in the vegetable stock and orange juice, and bring them to the boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover the pan and cook the vegetables for 20 minutes, or until the sweet potato and carrot cubes are tender.
  • Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender in batches, and process for one minute until pureed. Return the puree to the rinsed out pan.
  • Stir in the natural yoghurt and chopped coriander and season to taste. Serve the soup garnished with coriander sprigs and orange rind.
  • NOTE:.
  • This soup can be served chilled, if preferred. If chilling it, stir the yoghurt into the soup just before serving, and serve in chilled bowls.

    This is wonderful! I didn't have coriander so substituted a little cilantro. Also, I didn't puree it since we like chunky soup. Amazing!

    Delicious hearty vegetarian soup! I blended in the blender which it very silky and smooth. I did not use the fresh coriander as I don't care for it. Made for "Veg*n Swap 17 ~ Dec 2009 ~ Let's Play!

    Just finished a bowel of this tasty soup. It was so simple to make. I followed it to a tee but for that (coriander)stuff! I did use my immerser to blend the soup thus having the best of both ways...smooth with small chunks. THe fresh squeezed oj made the difference with this dish.

    Did this soup up the other day & although we do like pureed soups, this time around I left it chunky, though diced everything fairly small! A great combo of flavors, & a really nice change from the usual vegetable soups that we have! Also a keeper recipe, no less! Thanks for sharing it!

    This soup was pretty good. Refreshing and comforting at the same time. We like smooth soups, so I ded puree it. But I left out the yogurt. Thanks for posting :) Made for PRMR
