Try this easy Vegan Sweet Potato Soup with Coconut Milk
Forget Pumpkin Spice – what I look most forward to when summer turns to autumn is soup! Soul-hugging, heart-warming soup. And it never gets boring! As soon as the temperatures drop I start browsing the internet for new and exciting soup recipes – hashtag soupspiration.
But there’s also a couple of recipes I come back to every year because they are just THAT good. This Vegan Sweet Potato Soup with Coconut Milk and Lime is one of them! It’s so many things at once: Creamy, silky and rich – but light and even kind of refreshing at the same time. Try it out – you’ll understand what I mean.
Sweet Potato and Coconut is such a wonderful combination. Sweet and nutty ! Absolutely gorgeous. Lime zest and juice add a fresh element to this rich soup base and help to brighten the flavour! I also like to add some red curry paste and a a hint of ginger to the soup to add a bit heat and a refreshing Asian touch to my Sweet Potato Soup.
Creamy or chunky?
Now, there are usually 2 types of soup eaters: You are either fancy or rustic. For example: While my husband prefers soup finely pureed and silky smooth, I usually like mine chunky and lumpy.
This Vegan Sweet Potato Soup is one of the rare exceptions where there’s no discussion over the right texture. Here, I change sides. Admittedly, for esthetical reasons only.
I just love how the bright orange of the pureed sweet potatoes changes into this pretty pastel orange when mixed with the creamy coconut milk. And this silky smooth mouthfeel…divine!
There’s something about fall and orange foods, right ? I mean, doesn’t this bowl of sweet potato soup look like what you want to eat after that long walk in the park?
And there’s even a reason for that craving. Orange foods like squash, pumpkin, and sweet potato are vegetables are rich in carotenoids and other antioxidants that protect the body.
They are also more starchy and calorie-dense than most veggies, which gives us strength for those cold months ahead.
However, this Vegan Sweet Potato Soup with Coconut Milk and Lime is the type of soup you can serve no matter what the weather or season. It’s always delicious and a real mood-lifter! It makes for a delicious starter for your next dinner party but can even be enjoyed as the main dish of a meal alongside a simple salad.
