Thanksgiving Leftovers ? Fast and Easy Sweet Potato Soup -vegan

Pumpkin Soup, Soup, Pumpkin, Autumn

Got leftover cooked sweet potatoes from your Thanksgiving meal?  

Don’t let those leftover steamed or baked sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving go to waste!  Make this quick & delicious (spicy) 5 minute sweet potato soup. 

This creative recipe calls for a jar of organic chunky salsa (you decide if you would like your soup to be mild, medium, or spicy hot)!

Before I share the recipe, I want to mention that this recipe is one of the over 80 recipes in my plant-based soups cookbook (link to purchase on Amazon). Although all the recipes in my book are easy to make, they are not quite this easy. This recipe is a bonus quickie idea- not really a full soup recipe. Nonetheless, it is still delicious and worthy of being in my book!

     Fast and Easy Spicy Sweet Potato Soup 
Literally, set aside 5 minutes to prep, blend, and heat this fabulous recipe! Use leftover steamed sweet potatoes or leftover roasted or steamed butternut squash as the base for this delicious spicy creamy soup.  (or steam a sweet potato if you don't have any leftovers)

Here is what I do: 
I simply open a jar of organic mild chunky salsa. I then add 3 cups of vegetable broth, 1/4 cup of water, 1/2 cup of salsa and about 2 cups of cooked sweet potato or cooked butternut squash to a blender.  I blend, heat, and serve! So easy and so good.  Serves 2

1 large leftover sweet potato - steamed or baked and peeled 
1/2 cup of chunky salsa (mild, medium, or hot)
2 cups of tasty vegetable broth (I love Tabatchnicks)
1/4 cup of water 
1 tablespoon of diced avocado per bowl
1 tablespoon of nut milk per bowl


Place steamed and peeled sweet potato, salsa, water, and broth in a blender. Blend until creamy. Pour into a small pot and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and pour into 2 bowls. Top each bowl with avocado and coconut milk (or any nut milk).

Don't have leftovers? Steam a sweet potato or butternut squash first. Then follow directions.
