I am in LOVE with soup. Especially in the winter. I am even more in love with soup when they are simple, nutritious AND delicious. This soup hits all the marks. I have made this before with butternut squash and found a recipe for that from Joyous Health that I enjoyed. Bit this soup here is made with all sweet potato (use butternut squash if you like) but doing it with sweet potato means 1) most people have some in their home already 2) Its a simpler prep process 3) its cheaper 4) It is just as soothing and quite possibly even more delicious!

3-4 cups of sweet potatoes, diced (about 4-5 large sweet potatoes)
1 tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp bragg aminos
2 tsp salt (divided)
4-6 cups veggie or chicken stock (can also use water)
1 tsp Turmeric
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp pepper (optional)
1 lemon Juice (or more)
Preheat oven to 400F
Begin by washing, peeling and dicing your sweet potato.
Add 1 tbsp grapeseedoil until all potatoes are coated with oil. Then add 1 tsp salt ensuring that all potatoes have been touched by salt.
Put parchment paper on pan, then put the sweet potatoes flat on baking sheet (not over lapping). If the potatoes will over lap, use two pans. Pop in oven for 30-40 minutes until nicely brown/caramelized on bottom.
In meantime, Add cocount oil and diced onions to a medium pan Stir around for about 7 minutes.
Add bragg aminos so that the onions caramelize a wee-bit
Add your turmeric, ginger, salt.
Add stock to the pot and let come to boil, then turn down to a simmer to stay warm.
When sweet potatoes are done, add them to a high powered blender along with your onions and spices. Add a spoon full of your stock and blend it all up.
Add your blended veg, onion and spices to the pot with stock. Whisk it all together. It should be thick and creamy. Add the 1-2 lemons to your taste. And fresh pepper if you wish. If you want to get really fancy, sprinkle pine nuts and goat cheese on top! Enjoy!!
