Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 chipotle chili pepper + 1 tablespoon adobo sauce
  • 1 heaped tablespoon tomato paste
  • Salt & pepper to taste 

Instructions

  1. Prep your sweet potatoes and onion.
  2. Add the oil to a pot on medium-high heat. Sauté the onion for 5-7 minutes or until it's lightly browned. 
  3. Stir in the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  4. Add the vegetable broth, water, chipotle chili pepper + adobo sauce, tomato paste, and sweet potatoes. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cover with the lid slightly ajar for 15 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are very tender. 
  5. Blend the soup in batches until smooth (I recommend letting the soup cool for 10-15 minutes first to do this more safely). Season with salt & pepper and serve immediately. Soup can be frozen for up to 3 months.
