Sweet Potato, Carrot, and Curry Soup

I wanted something warming, health, filling, and delicious. There is also a plethora of sweet potatoes and carrots in my home. I also wanted something versatile and healthy, two things I think that are highly important to me.

Now some spices added:

All cooked and blended. Once the blending was done I added 2 cups of frozen peas.

Alright here is my method.

Ingredients:

  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • 1 white onion
  • 8 carrots
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 5c of vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp curry powder – or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp of celery salt (mainly because I didn’t have celery at home)
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

Directions:

  • Chop up sweet potato, onion, carrots and place in crock pot
  • Put the garlic cloves, vegetable broth, curry powder, celery salt and black pepper in crock pot
  • Put crock pot on low for the next 7 hours
  • Once cooked in the crock pot, use an immersion blender to blend all the veggies up. If you do not have an immersion blender but do have another blender on hand, you can of course use that! Just be careful when added in the hot soup and blending. DO NOT fill your blender up more then 2/3 of the way – this will prevent hot liquid from spilling. Also, watch the blender that way no lids go flying off and whatnot. BE SAFE and use common sense.

Serving/Garnish suggestions:

  • serve with roast chick peas
  • Serve with crispy chicken
  • Parsley
  • coconut milk drizzle
  • sour cream
  • Naan
  • Pita bread

I crisped up some of the roast chicken that I cooked over the weekend, added some parsley, and then drizzled coconut milk.

This was one of those dishes that also worked out well as lunches throughout the week! It was very filling and easy to add some filler to it. I did like adding roasted chickpeas on top, it gave some crunch and if you roast them with curry they are a blast of flavor!

    Hi Keisha,

    This soup sounds very good, easy and great for lunches. If my husband generally doesn’t like curry powder unlike myself can you recommend a mild flavor one that may still work. If I wanted to substitute peas for something do you have a suggestion? Also do you put whole garlic cloves in crock pot and not chop them first?

    So true about being careful if using a regular blender to purée soup. I had that happened once to me and my husband couldn’t figure out why I had to change clothes before dinner. It came out on me head to toes. I can laugh about it now.

    Hope your New Year is starting off great. Thanks for this recipe and with your additional info plan on trying it soon,

    Shelley

      Hello Shelley! There are curry mixes that do specify mild, I get one from Costco or in the bulk section at supermarkets. However, if you truly don’t want to have a curry flavor (the one I use isn’t spicy), you can always add cumin, chili powder, turmeric, paprika (smoked is nice) some salt/pepper. Just use seasonings YOU like instead.

      For the garlic, I mince it up. There is a really cool garlic handheld mincer as well if you want to use that instead. Since you are blending the soup though, whole but roughly chopped would work. Garlic powder would also work in a pinch if you don’t have whole.

      Oh no!! Horrible blender disaster! If you can’t use the lid, put a towel over top, that helps with the heat too.

      Let me know if this helps at all!

      Oh and since you don’t like peas you can just eliminate them all together. If you still want green in it, add some broccoli/green beans or something else you think would work. Even chickpeas in the soup could be good!

    Keisha,

    Is there a certain curry that is mild that mind husband might not mind?

    Also, could you recommend a different veggie if I’m not crazy about the peas. Do you use whole garlic cloves and not chop them?

    Thx, Shelley can wait to try this recipe
