Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb sweet potatoes , cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 medium yellow onion , cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 2 apples , cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 4 cloves garlic , crushed
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • fresh chopped parsley, chopped pecans, crumbled blue cheese for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients except for coconut milk and garnishes into a large slow cooker. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low 6-7 hours, until sweet potatoes are soft.
  • Pour coconut milk into soup once you have turned off the slow cooker. Using an immersion blender, blend ingredients together until completely smooth. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender. You will have top do this in batches, filling the blender only halfway each batch. Careful, as soup will be very hot!
