Easy Sweet Potato & Greens Soup

Sweet Potato and Kale Soup

I made this delicious recipe for Nutty Vanilla Kale and Sweet Potato Soup tonight…and it was delicious! Garam masala is probably the queen bee of spices and combined with the coconut milk it made the house smell divine. The soup is sweet, savory, nutritious and has a wonderful texture. I ended up using some collards as well, since we got them in our CSA this week along with the sweet potatoes, kale, fall squash, cukes and hot peppers.

For anyone looking for garam masala, you don’t have to travel to an Indian market if there isn’t one nearby—Whole Foods carries it for $5.99 (and it’s worth every penny). Give this tasty soup a try—it’s a great way to use some seasonal veggies!

  1. Hi Liz,

    Thanks you so much for this recipe! I made it with butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes and it was amazing. More generally, thank you so much for this blog! I live near Annapolis; I recently went looking for a CSA to join, and your blog was extremely helpful to me in understanding how much produce I would get and how I could use it. I just joined Practically Organic for 2012! I hope you’ll be getting your veggies from there and blogging about it again next year. I recently started my own blog (http://csavirgin.blogspot.com) and I think it would be fun to share tips and recipes with you.

    All the best,

    • Erin,

      Thank you for your lovely note! Glad to hear that you liked the soup and have even joined Practically Organic as a CSA member. I’m not sure if I’m going to join again next year, but will definitely still support local agriculture at farmer’s markets. I checked out your blog and subscribed – love the posts so far. It’s wonderful to see other local bloggers who are interested in eating locally and cooking. Best wishes to you – I look forward to reading!:)
