‘Soup’er Sunday – Sweet Potato & Carrot Soup

Categories: 'Soup'er Sunday and Recipes.

Would you like a bowl of sweet potato and carrot soup?  It is delicious and a great way to get your servings of vegetables.

This is a quick and easy to soup to make and it freezes well in smaller portions.  I’m a plain cook, don’t add many spices or seasonings due to health issues.

Regular visitors know I use freezer bags that store flat and take up a lot less space to freeze portions of soup.  This soup keeps its lovely orange colour, even when frozen.  It thaws quickly on the counter and then pours into a mug or bowl.

  1. I find any vegetables sauteed and cooked with spices then blended up makes a mighty fine soup and is a complete meal with a nice chunk of crusty bread. But when it comes to sweet potatoes, I prefer them drizzled with olive oil and roasted in the oven. I eat them as is, or sometimes sprinkle with cinnamon and chopped walnuts and have them for breakfast. 🙂

  2. Ha! I was going to make sweet potato soup last night, but I ended up making oven-roasted sweet potato “fries.” Ooops. Soup will on for next week. I’ll have have to give your recipe a try.

    • I’m a plain cook, hardly any spices or seasonings due to health restrictions. The ones you mention would cause havoc with my insides. But I always say that seasonings are up to you. I also love just the natural taste of the food without any additives. Thanks for stopping by.

    That sounds like a good combination Linda, I will have to try it. I added sweet potato to the vegetable soup I made a week ago.

  4. Such a pretty color and I love a soup that freezes well–perfect to pull out and have easily have steaming and ready to eat.
    Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week. 😉

  5. This soup is simple to make yet delicious. It’s just a perfect option during this cold winter. This sweet potatoes soup looks like one that warms your soul too 🙂 Will try to make one soon.
