Fall Detox Sweet Potato Veggie Soup. This soup brings such warmth and soul to your body with every spoon. Honestly, I’m so excited to finally share this recipe with you all. 

If you’ve been an avid follower of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you’re aware that soup is my ultimate favorite thing! SOUP TIME is the absolute best time of the year! And while I enjoy soup year-round, the Fall/Winter months are the best times to eat the thicker and heartier soups. 

I thoroughly enjoy eating all kinds of soup and this especially veggie-based soups that offer a ton of nutritional value. 

Personally, it’s all about using broths more than just fresh water, which adds a ton of extra flavor. My go-to brand for both chicken + veggies broths is Pacific Foods.

The Process in 3 Simple Steps:

  • Begin by prepping your ingredients first! I find it to be a much easier process when I rinse, dice, and chop all ingredients that are needed. This allows you to be best organized and reduces the mess factor.
  • Cook all of your veggies in a large dutch pot (it helps to cook your soup best) and in veggie stock. Then you blend everything together (using an emersion blender or actual blender).
  • Finally, you stir, season again for taste, and wallah. It’s magic!

Best Ingredients to Thicken Soup.

When it comes to thickening your vegan soup, it can be done in various ways. Many recipes use yogurt, arrowroot starch, potatoes, or other starches. For this soup I chose to use the sweet potatoes and white beans as my thickeners, which adds a nice texture while not being extremely thick. You can use canned coconut milk as well, however, you would need to refrigerate it for 24 hours so that it thickens and becomes cream-like as well.

How to Store Leftover Soup.

With leftovers, you can always refrigerate the remaining amounts in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, for optimal freshness. Can also be frozen for 4-6 months. To defrost, simply place soup in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature before re-heating on the stove top to serve.

So let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?

Add 1-2 Tbsps of olive oil to a large dutch pot on medium-high heat. Add in the garlic and onions, and Sauté for 1-2 minutes until slightly softened and fragrant.

Add the carrots, onions, celery, sweet potatoes, white beans, jalapeños, kale, and veggie broth and bring to a boil. Once it begins to boil, reduce heat to low and let simmer for 30-40 minutes. Season with herbs + spices and stir until well incorporated.

Using a hand blender, blend everything until full smooth. **NOTE: if you don’t have a hand blender, carefully add the cooked veggies (along with 1 cup of the veggie stock from the pot) into a high-powered blender, blending until smooth and creamy.**

Be sure to leave a few chunks of veggies in the soup for a nice texture.

Finally, season again to taste and add in kale. Let simmer for another 5-10 minutes, until kale is cooked and soft. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
