A creamy bowl of broccoli and sweet potato soup sure would taste good tonight! And don’t forget, leftover soup makes a great lunch.

Ingredients:

8 cups low sodium or no-salt-added vegetable broth
2 medium Japanese or regular sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 large bunch broccoli
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
3-5 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups cooked or 2 (15 ounce) cans no-salt-added or low sodium white beans, drained
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/3 cup unfortified nutritional yeast
1/2 cup unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk

Instructions:

Bring vegetable broth to a boil in a large soup pot. Add potatoes and cook for 5-6 minutes, until almost tender. Cut broccoli into small florets. Dice or thinly slice the stems. Add broccoli, onion and garlic to the pot and cook until broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans and reduce heat to a simmer.

Place 2 cups of the soup in a blender along with black pepper, chile powder, paprika, turmeric, nutmeg, nutritional yeast and non-dairy milk and blend until smooth. Pour blended mixture back into soup pot, add bay leaf and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove bay leaf before serving.

I really enjoyed this soup! It makes a huge potful! I had to alter the recipe slightly due to the ingredients I had on hand. For the large bunch of brocolli, I used a mixture of brocolli, cauliflower and carrots (frozen mixture). Instead of the 3 cups of white beans, I used one can of white beans and one can of black beans. One other thing is instead of adding some to the blender as instructed, I used an immersion blender (it's just easier).  With my alterations, it's still REALLY good! This is a keeper :)

I really like the soup! I used 2 - 10 ounce bags of frozen broccoli instead of fresh and 2 cans of navy beans. The instructions didn’t say when to add the garlic so I put it in the blender. If I had company I would probably put a little less chipotle chili powder for those who don’t like spicy, but for me it was perfect??

This is delicious creamy cheesy goodness! Great comfort food on an overcast day. I used smoked paprika for little extra flavor.

I wish that I could have the same comments, mine turned out bad, don't know why, made it last night and can still feel it in my stomach and I have no health issues

This was great. It will now be in my regular rotation!  I reduced the chipotle chili pepper to about 2/3 tsp but other than that followed the instructions as is. It was more like comfort food than most of my ETL stuff. I'd recommend even for SAD eaters. 

Again, as someone mentioned when to add the garlic is not written in the instructions so this time we added with the spices but I'll add with the onion next time.  

I gave it 5* but it still says no rating by my post. I think you must have to hit the rating before you click Post a Comment???

Excellent.  I added a lot more garlic (with the onion), used large peeled sweet potatoes, and amped the spice quantities and heat level with plenty of black and cayenne and some extra hot chili powder.  I also added a container of extra firm drained tofu cut into half inch squares at the end for more body, and per suggestions above used frozen broccoli and an immersion blender and a mix of cannelini and black beans.

I love this soup, and my husband even likes it! The first time I  made it, I didn't have any broccoli, so I subbed cauliflower, it was so good I make it that way all the time now! Couldn't find how to rate this but obviously it's a 5 out of 5!
