Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon vegan margarine
    1 small onion, chopped
    1/4 cup chopped carrot
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    3 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
    2 pears, peeled and diced
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon paprika
    5 cups vegetable broth
    1/3 cup coconut milk
    2 teaspoons maple syrup, or to taste
    2 teaspoons lime juice, or to taste
    salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions

In a pot, heat margarine on medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and sauté for 1 minute. Add sweet potatoes, pears and thyme and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add paprika and veggie broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes or until sweet potato is soft.

Wait for soup to cool down a bit before you puree it, otherwise it will explode in the blender because of the heat.

Puree in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return to pot. Add coconut milk, maple syrup and lime juice. Simmer for 5 minutes. If soup is too thick add a little extra broth.
Season with salt and pepper, adding more syrup or lime juice as needed. Drizzle with maple syrup if preferred. Can be made up to 2 days ahead of time.

  • Instead of using vegan margerine, I used 1/2 tsp of canola oil, 3 cups chicken broth and 2 cups water, and omitted the maple syrup. Makes about 12 - 1 cup servings. - 2/10/11
