Cream of Sweet Potato Soup Recipe


  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 3 (14 ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, or more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Bake sweet potatoes in preheated oven until soft, about 1 1/2 hours (you can also use a microwave). Remove and let cool slightly.

Peel sweet potatoes, and puree with chicken broth in batches, using enough chicken broth so that it purees smoothly. Bring puree to a simmer in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in the sugar, salt, nutmeg, black pepper, and cayenne pepper; cover, and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in cream.
