Creamy Comfort Food

Mmmm, heart and body warming nourishment

Creamy Beta-carotene Boost

This was a soup I devised while visiting with my mom. I was exhausted from a day of funeral activities, but needed something light, nourishing and FAST.

You can even keep the sweet potato raw and let the Vita-Mix do the “cooking” for extra enzyme power, and easier clean-up.

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Celtic salt (or to taste)
  • small chunk fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • Optional: chopped rosemary, parsley or sage for garnish
  1. Cube sweet potato and place in a steamer basket in a pot with about 1/2 inch of water.
  2. Lightly steam for about 1 or 2 minutes (or skip this step, add everything to the Vita-Mix, and run for 5 minutes to “cook” your soup)
  3. Place in the Vita-Mix with all the other ingredients, plus about 1/4-1/2 cup of the steam water and blend on high for about 2 minutes.
  4. Tip: I like to add just a hint of fresh lemon or orange juice to contrast the sweetness of this soup
