Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. pastured butter or ghee
  • 1 small Vidalia onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, halved
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated ginger root
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • 2 lbs. sweet potatoes (about 2 large), peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

  • work well)
  • 1 Tbs. 100% pure maple syrup, or to taste
  • ½ tsp. salt, or to taste
  • 1-2 Tbs. finely minced fresh rosemary to garnish (optional)

Preparation

  1. Melt butter over medium heat in a soup pot. Add onion and celery, and sauté 5 minutes until onions are fragrant.
  2. Add fresh ginger, garlic, cinnamon, ground ginger, and cayenne pepper, and cook 1 minute more, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Stir in sweet potatoes, pour 4 cups of broth over vegetables, add salt, and increase heat to bring soup just to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Add apples, and simmer another 10 minutes or until potatoes are very tender. Remove and discard celery. Stir in syrup, if using, and purée soup with immersion blender. (Or cool slightly and purée in batches in a blender or food processor.) Adjust seasonings to taste.

Japanese Sweet Potato Soup with Rice & Nori Croutons recipe.

Japanese Sweet Potato Soup

This creamy vegan soup is topped with crispy rice “croutons” laced with seaweed; we used crumbled nori, but kelp or dulse flakes would work as well.

Spring Fresh Pea Soup

Made with fresh peas, this light and lovely soup is a nutrient-loaded, super-fresh alternative to traditional split pea soup with ham.

This collagen-rich soup hits the healthful spot on cold winter nights.

Winter Warmer Blended Soup

If you struggle with digesting beans, add a 1-inch strip of dried kombu (a type of Japanese seaweed) when you add the broth; remove it before you purée the soup.
