This Creamy Vegan Sweet Potato Soup is rich and unique in flavor by using both sweet and gold potatoes. Easy to make, just 8 ingredients and is dairy-free and oil-free. 

CREAMY VEGAN SWEET POTATO SOUP

Sometimes, the most delicious recipes can be the simplest. Potato soup is simple, but so comforting, especially during the holidays, don’t you agree? This vegan creamy sweet potato soup recipe uses both sweet potatoes and yukon gold potatoes….the combo is so delicious. The yukon gold potatoes lend a buttery taste. Super simple, few ingredients and so delicious. Bonus that it is dairy-free, oil-free, gluten-free and ready in less than an hour. There is nothing I enjoy eating more than soup!

This oil-free creamy potato soup gets an extra boost of flavor and nutrition from the yukon gold potatoes. Most people know how good sweet potatoes are for you…but did you also know that yukon gold potatoes are an excellent source of nutrition?

The yukon gold potatoes also have a mild buttery flavor to them naturally. They have a lot more flavor than red potatoes or russet, for example, so you really want to use the yukon gold, or the soup will be more bland.

ARE POTATOES HEALTHY?

Potatoes way too often get a bad rap for being unhealthy because they are a carb. But, fear not, potatoes have some amazing health benefits. Now come on, the carbs that are in potatoes are hardly the equivalent of carbs in junk food or sugary desserts. Remember, there are healthy carbs and unhealthy carbs. Here is why potatoes are the good carbs:

  • Source of iron
  • Great source of fiber
  • High in potassium (1 medium potato contains about 770 mg)
  • High in Vitamin C (1 medium potato contains about 50% of our daily RDA! Vitamin C is also needed to absorb iron into the body)
  • Fat-free (yippee!)
  • Filling and satisfying

Yay for healthy soup that tastes amazing, thick and creamy, healthy, plant-based and whole foods!

HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGAN SWEET POTATO SOUP?

For this super delicious Vegan Creamy Sweet Potato Soup, you’ll need only 8 main ingredients:

  • yukon gold  potatoes
  • sweet potatoes
  • white onion
  • garlic
  • low sodium vegetable broth
  • tomato paste
  • cumin

Start out by cooking the onion and garlic in a large pot over medium heat with some water. Cook until tender.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.

Bring to a boil and once boiling, turn to low heat and cover.

Simmer for 20-25 mins, or until the potatoes are completely tender.

Blend with an immersion blender to a creamy consistency. Or you can use a regular blender, just don’t blend it too long into a complete liquid.

Instructions 

  • Have all ingredients chopped and ready to go. Make sure all the potatoes are chopped into small 1/2 inch chunks similarly so they cook evenly.

  • Add the onion to a large pot (this makes a TON) with 1/2 cup of the broth over medium heat. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the garlic and cook another minute.

  • Add all of the remaining ingredients (the remaining 6 cups of broth) to the pot and stir well.

  • Bring to a boil and once boiling, turn to low heat and cover. Simmer for 20-25 mins, or until the potatoes are completely soft and tender. (see tip below for while the soup is simmering)

  • Blend the whole soup with an immersion blender to a creamy consistency. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender, but you’ll have to do it in 2-3 batches, depending on the size of your blender. This makes so much that you will not be able to blend it all up at once.

  • Tip: While the soup is cooking, chop up a couple more yukon gold potatoes into small 1/2 inch pieces and bake at 425° for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. I love the texture it added. Top with green onions. So good!

Notes

The yukon gold potatoes also have a mild buttery flavor to them naturally. They have a lot more flavor than red potatoes or russet, for example, so you really want to use the yukon gold, or the soup will be more bland.
