Sweet Potato Cilantro Onion Soup

Sweet Potato Cilantro Onion Soup

2 pre-baked sweet potatoes – sliced in semi-circle rounds

1 small onion (Vidalia) – chopped roughly (or ½ a medium one)

2-3 cloves of garlic – chopped

1 c – cilantro leaves removed from the stems

1 c – chicken broth or vegetable broth

3 c – filtered water

4 tb coconut oil

½ c of walnuts

½ c of Daiya chedder cheese

1 tsp of black pepper


Pre-bake your sweet potatoes at 350 for an hour (can be done the night before).

Sautee chopped onion in 2 tb of coconut oil. When translucent and fragrant, add in the garlic and continue sautéing for another minute or so.

Add 1-3/4 of the sweet potatoes and mix thoroughly to coat with coconut oil and sautéed onion garlic mixture for 3 minutes on medium heat. (Save the ¼ sweet potato to add to final bowl)

Add 1 c of broth and bring to a boil.  In the meantime grind the walnuts and cheese in a food processor or Vitamix blender until they become blended crumbs.

When boiling turn down heat to low and add the cilantro (reserve a few leaves to chop and use for garnish), 3 cups of water, black pepper, and walnut cheese crumbs. Stir to combine thoroughly and cook on low for another 5 minutes or so.

Remove from heat and return to the blender, blend until smooth. Add a slice of the sweet potato remaining to each bowl, and chopped cilantro to garnish. 

Bon appétit!
