Sweet Potato Peanut Soup Recipe

With the weather cooling off, that means it's time for some yummy warm soup full of fall flavors! I found this recipe at Shape and did a little tweaking to get it just right for my family's taste. I'm sure that my version would not be approved by Shape's health experts, but that's okay with me. This is SO yummy!!

  • ~1T. Oil (I used Canola, but just about any oil will work)
  • 1 Large leek
  • 1/2 Cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Cloves of garlic
  • Pinch of Cayenne (Optional)
  • 6 Cups vegetable broth
  • 1 Large sweet potato
  • 1/4 Cup of butter
  • Garnishes:
    • Roasted peanuts
    • Cinnamon
 1. Clean and dice the leek. I had never worked with a leek before and found this video VERY helpful!

 2. Add about a Tablespoon of oil to a pan and saute the leek. Rosey Posey was a huge help with this!

 3. Dice the sweet potato.

 4. Put all ingredients except garnishes in the pot.

 5. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 min. (I know it doesn't look that great right now, but the smell is amazing!)

 6. Allow to cool 5-10 min, ladle into blender.

 7. Blend until smooth.

 8. Return to pot and warm to desired temperature.

9. Top with chopped peanuts and cinnamon. Meme enjoyed her's with crackers.

This soup was so yummy and totally made it feel like Fall! My photos above show me making a double batch, but I would guess that a single batch would have about 4 servings. Even Little Lady (Picky toddler) ate all her soup. She enjoyed hers with a little bread to dip into it. What fall soups are you cooking this year?
