Ginger, Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup
By Paleo Plan
Yield 4 servings
Got sweet potatoes? Looking for a way to use them up? Our Paleo Ginger, Carrot and Sweet Potato Soup is sweet, creamy, and slightly spicy with an exotic flair. This sweet potato recipe can be easily modified to be vegan or vegetarian (simply replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth). This easy to follow recipe results in a delicious pureed Paleo soup that utilizes staple winter vegetables, but still has an exotic flair. It makes a nice light dinner when served with a side of meat, but is filling and satisfying on its own as well. You can also add pre-cooked ground poultry or cooked shredded chicken to the soup while its cooking, for an even heartier version of this incredible Paleo sweet potato soup.
