This delicious soup has only 6 ingredients. It was given to me by my boyfriend’s mom who adapted it from another recipe. It can be as thick or thin as you like, and I like it quite thick. To dress it up when serving, drizzle some cream on top and float a lime twist or slice of lime on top. Delicious hot or cold.

Sweet Potato Soup recipe

  • 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water, or as needed
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 cups milk or cream, or as needed


Place potatoes and ginger in large saucepan. Pour in chicken stock and water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer until the potatoes have softened, about 30 minutes.

Puree potatoes and lime juice in a food processor, or with a hand blender until smooth. Return soup to saucepan and stir in milk or cream as desired; heat until warmed through.
