Sweet Potato & Apple Soup

October 10, 2013

Cold, rainy days bringing your spirits down?

Even though I’m still not ready to let go of the lazy days of summer, I am ready for the lazy, slow-cooked soup days!

Nothing soothes the soul quite like a bowl of hearty, warm soup.  Don’t you think?

The ingredients are perfectly paired and their flavors are incredibly complimentary – the sweetness of sweet potatoes, with the tartness of apples and the smokiness of paprika.

serves 8

1/2 large onion, but into chunks
1 lb white sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces (no need to peel, as long as you wash first
1.5 lbs orange sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch pieces (no need to peel, wash first)
2 apples, cut into chunks (no need to peel – wash first) (any variety works)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 heaping tblsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp sea salt
4 c homemade broth (organic, low sodium works)
4 tblsp ghee

In a slow cooker, dump onion, potatoes, apples, garlic, paprika and sea salt.
Pour broth over the top.
Cook on high for 5 hours.
In batches, pour soup through a blender or – my favorite method – use an immersion blender and blend right in your slow cooker.
Stir in ghee.
Serve and freeze any leftovers in individual sized portions for easy meals.

*I like to stir in a teaspoon of any kind of pesto into each individual bowl before serving.
