Soup’s on!!

I love a good soup on those days that just need a little extra cozy. Like those days when it’s chilly, rainy, or dreary outside. Or those days where you’re just not quite feeling your A-game. Also see: those days where you need an easy, light dinner.

That’s where this soup came in! It was the Sunday night of a great, full weekend and a dreary, drizzly, fall day. We wanted something easy, light, and comforting for dinner.

Being totally honest? The convenience of take-out sounded super appealing, but after party food Saturday and out to Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch with family in town, I had zero interest in actually eating out again. All I wanted was VEGETABLES!! Ya feel me?

So I raided my fridge and pantry and landed on this comforting Spiced Sweet Potato Carrot Soup. It’s full of produce (sweet potato, carrots, and onion), completely plant-based, and cooks quickly. It’s also chock full of spices that have benefits ranging from blood glucose control (cinnamon) to anti-inflammatory (turmeric)…not to mention the fact that it adds so much flavor!

It’s also free of most common food allergies. I did use lite coconut milk, which the FDA technically classifies as a tree nut although the cross-reactivity of those allergic to tree nuts also being allergic to coconut is fairly low. If you can’t tolerate coconut milk, feel free to substitute any other milk or milk substitute, just use a little less or the soup will be thinner.

To get the same crunchy garnish on top, just add a few pumpkin seeds and crunchy chickpeas! I used my Rosemary Cumin Roasted Chickpeas that go PERFECTLY with this soup!

  3. Yes, don't ever serve coconut milk to a vegan. Apparently coconuts are kept in very inhumane conditions, several crowded into a small cage, and they're milked frequently, with no chance of getting exercise. Apparently, you can see how sad this makes the little guys.
  4. JOE DeJoe BUT you Never told me what I could use in place of Coconut Milk??? I know for a fact my Vegan person will never have Coconut Milk. Terryk5%aol.com
  5. Hi Terry! Coconut milk is 100% vegan, but if your friend or family member prefers other non-dairy milks, you can use whatever their preferred milk substitute is (i.e. almond milk, cashew milk, soy milk, etc.). Hope that helps!
  6. How many does one batch serve? Could this be transferred to a crockpot after step one and continue to be heated on low heat? I'm looking to take soup to a painting class I take.
  7. Hi Holly! This soup serves 4-6 (varies if you're looking for more of a side serving or entree serving). Your painting class sounds so fun! I would just make the soup and then keep it on warm or low in the slow cooker to stay warm throughout the class. Thank you! 😊
  8. Thank you so much! I made it and it was easy and so yummy. I even made the roasted chickpeas and pumpkin seeds, I had everything in my pantry, I'll need to get lite coconut milk. Why can't Vegans eat coconut milk? TU again
  9. Hi Donna! Thank you so much, I'm so glad to hear you liked everything!!! Made my day. :) And coconut milk is 100% vegan. (I wonder if the commenter above had a vegan in her house who just didn't prefer coconut milk, I'm not certain, but I am certain coconut milk is vegan!). Thanks again!!
