Thanksgiving Leftovers ? Fast and Easy Sweet Potato Soup -vegan

Pumpkin Soup, Soup, Pumpkin, Autumn

Got leftover cooked sweet potatoes? I make this quick & delicious spicy 5 minute sweet potato soup that you can find in my new soup cookbook and recipe shared below.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and a fabulous celebration of the fall harvest. 

Surprisingly, it's a great time for us vegetarians/vegans with the focus on so many vegetables. It seems that sometimes the only thing I can't eat is the turkey!

Steamed sweet potatoes sliced in half and with toppings. 
Like everyone else, I make winter squashes, pumpkin, sweet potatoes. In particular, I like to make steamed sweet potatoes in my Instant Pot which is easy and comes out soft and juicy. Of course, I always make too many and have leftovers.

This recipe comes from my cookbook! 

          Fast and Easy Spicy Sweet Potato Soup 


This recipe will literally take you all of 5  minutes to prep, blend, and cook!

I use leftover steamed sweet potatoes or leftover roasted or steamed butternut squash.

I simply open a jar of organic mild chunky salsa. I then add 3 cups of vegetable broth and 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.  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 mild, medium, or hot salsa
2 cups of vegetable broth
1/4 cup of water 
1 tablespoon of diced avocado per bowl
1 tablespoon of coconut 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.
