Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes peeled & cut into rough 2" pieces
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (regular is ok too)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Half-and-half or heavy cream to taste (optional)

Instructions

  1. Prep your onion and sweet potato. 
  2. Add the olive oil and onion to your Instant Pot and sauté for 5 minutes. 
  3. Add the sweet potatoes, vegetable broth, water, garlic, smoked paprika, and cinnamon to the pressure cooker. Make sure the valve is on "sealing" and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. It'll take about 10-15 minutes for it to get up to pressure. 
  4. Once the countdown is finished, do a quick release (carefully - soups can splatter a bit). 
  5. Blend the soup in batches (you may want to let it cool a bit first) or use a stick blender. Season with salt & pepper as needed (I found that I needed to be pretty generous with the salt). Add half-and-half or cream if desired (I skipped it). I'd start with 1/2 cup and work my way up from there.
