Lush, delicious, amazing and easy to make, not sure how many calories are in a serving, but easy 4 portions thank you x
Hi, Heather! Glad you liked this. We don’t currently calculate nutritional information on our recipes. I’d recommend using an online nutritional calculator like this one.
Wow. Just made a potful for company and it’s wonderful. I’ve made this many times but never thought to roast the taters first. Excellent. Thank you (I also added a little maple syrup.)
Wonderful Carol, I’m so glad you liked it! Love the addition of a little maple syrup.
Laura:;Not only is it really yummy to add roasted jalapenos halves to it it’s also really yummy to add some lime juice/creme mix to the top of it!
This is insanely easy and INSANELY tasty!! Doubling it next time!
I love to add a roasted jalapeno to this soup! The combination of sweet and spicy is to die for. Thanks for another excellent recipe, Elise!
This is very good. I made according to the recipes and all turned at well. This might not make it through the night. Thank you so much or a delicious recipe. I will be making this again.
This is SO good! I’m not a huge sweet potato fan, but I know how good they are for me, so I went in search of a recipe for sweet potato soup. I found this one and I’m so glad I did. I could eat it every single day.
I made this last night. Delicious!! I will be making it again. I made no changes. I don’t make changes when making a recipe for the first time. I need to see what the original flavoring is. I will not change a thing in this one!!
Absolutely delicious. At the end, I add a squeeze of lemon and it brings the flavors out even more.
This a really great soup and very easy and quick to make. The favours are rich and sweet. Excellent recipe. Thank you!
I’m so glad you like it Mike!
I just made this and it’s absolutely delicious! Instead of sour cream I drizzled honey on top. Sooo good! Thank you so much for this recipe.
I’ve just made this recipe and it’s so GOOD!!!! I totally will make it again. So creamy and tasty!!!
Vegetable Broth works great too!
Made this just now. Used red onion and only olive oil, salt, pepper. Snacked on some out of the oven. YUMMY!!! Made into soup and it lost flavor with with broth added. Doing a second batch now that I’ll roast and leave as is. Thanks for a great twist on sweet potatoes!
Do you think chicken stock can be replaced with vegetable stock to make a vegetarian version of this? Has anyone tried it and does it taste as good?
Hi Sarah, sure! Just make sure you are using a good tasting vegetable stock, or make your own from scratch (see http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_make_vegetable_stock/). I find most boxed vegetable stocks aren’t very good.
I tried vegetable stock and it tastes great!
This was wonderful and easy! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This soup was fantastic. I followed the directions exactly and was pleased with the results. Thanks!
I typically don’t cook a lot when I don’t have to, but a few days ago my awesome neighbor gave us a ton of sweet potatoes from her vegetable garden, meaning I HAD to do something with them. Well, I whipped up a sweet potato soup using your fabulous recipe, and also added some chopped up carrots. It came out really, really well ~ thank you so much!! (Also made dehydrated potato chips for my pups and mashed sweet potato puree – and I STILL have 5 sweet potatoes left over!!)
I didn’t have shallots so I replaced with garlic. OMG so good.
Going to try this now…how many potatoes do you recommend for a family of 4?
Hi Ruth, it depends if the soup is a main course or a side. If a side, use a pound of sweet potatoes (1 quite large sweet potato). If it’s a main, use 2.
