This really is about as easy as a soup can be. It comes together in about 20-30 minutes total & is powerfully flavorful. There is no dairy of any kind so it is as guiltless as it is delicious. A really wonderful, winter warmer!
One Pot Spicy Vegan Orange Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup
2 large sweet potatoes – peeled & cubed
1 onion (I used a red one) – chopped
4 garlic cloves – chopped
Juice of 2 oranges
1-3 chipotle peppers (or to taste) in their adobo sauce – chopped
6 cups stock
1 tsp ground coriander
S&P to taste
Garnish ideas: avocado, arugula, black and/or white sesame seeds
Heat about 1 TBS olive oil in a deep stock pot. eat the onions & garlic over medium heat until just tender, trying not to brown them. Add the stock, orange juice, chipotle peppers, coriander & sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat & simmer for about 15 minutes or so – or until the sweet potatoes are very soft.
I used an immersion blender to puree the soup but, if you do not have one, puree the soup in a blender. Season with S&P.
Garnish as you like & commence indulging yourself!
How do you think it would work with purple yams? I hate regular sweet potatoes.

I think it will probably LOOK ugly but taste good. I am not a sweet potato fan AT ALL and I fucking LOVE this soup. So – maybe try it?
