Soups are among my favorite kind of dishes. They are easy  to make in a single pot. You can play so much with ingredients and flavors. And the best thing is you can prepare a big batch and enjoy it as meal prep option for a work lunch, or even quick weeknight dinner.

Some of my best soup recipes are the Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup, the Buffalo Cauliflower Soup or the Spicy Garlic Enchilada Soup. All combine easy preparation with amazing flavors.

Finally cook with a lid on top on medium heat for 15 minutes until potatoes are soft. Again, stir from time to time.

After letting all cool for 3 minutes, use an immersion blender, blender or food processor, to puree the soup until it is smooth and creamy. Serve in bowls, devour and enjoy.

My easy vegan Sweet Potato Soup makes such an amazing meal for dinner, lunch, or meal prep. Yup cook the soup a couple of days before and simple reheat.

Tips and tricks:

If you aim for a more chunky texture just pulse the soup a couple of times. You can do this with any blender or food processor. It is even possible with an immersion blender. The trick is to use any of the devices just for a short time to get a chunky texture.

Can I freeze this? I wouldn’t recommend it because it will have a different taste and texture. My guess is it is better to make this sweet potato soup with coconut milk up to 4 days in advance and store it in the fridge.

Just reheat it, that way you will get the right texture and taste, which you can’t achieve while freezing.

Enjoy the vegan Sweet Potato Soup for lunch, as a dinner, or a meal prep recipe.

More flavors, more taste

An idea that I tried with this base recipe was adding 1 Tbs Red Curry Paste to make it a Thai sweet potato soup. So good.

Switch optional celery for carrots to make a sweet potato carrot soup, delicious.

Mores sweet potato recipes to try are my Sweet Potato Curry or the Cajun Sweet Potato Rice Bowl.

Simple, delicious and filling: this vegan Sweet Potato Soup is a keeper that the whole family will love for dinner, lunch, meal prep. Made with simple ingredients, high in flavor. Even the pickiest eaters are on board in no time. #vegan #dairyfree #glutenfree #vegetarian #dinner #lunch #mealprep #contentednesscooking #sweetpotatosoup
