Carrot-Sweet Potato Puree Soup

  • Author: Nele Liivlaid
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 3 - 4 servings 1x


When I decided to take on a yellow-orange puree soup made of carrots and sweet potato, I was sure it wouldn’t come out perfect the first time and that I’d need to play with the quantities for at least a couple of times before sharing the recipe. I was wrong! It came out so perfect that I wouldn’t change a thing! My mom was visiting and enjoyed the soup a lot – and of course all the other meals I prepared as well!


  • 1 big onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2cm piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 2 heaped tbsp. broth powder
  • ½tsp turmeric
  • 700g carrots, cut into smaller pieces
  • 1 medium sweet potato, cut into cubes
  • Water
  • Handful of cashews


  1. In a thick-bottomed soup pot, heat 2tbsp of water. Once it starts to sizzle, add chopped onions. Sautee until the onions become translucent adding water one tablespoon at a time to prevent sticking. Throw in the garlic and ginger and sauté for another minute.
  2. Add sweet potato, carrots, vegetable broth and enough boiling water to cover the veggies and a bit more. Stir well with a spoon. Bring to boil and let it simmer until the veggies are soft enough for pureeing – about 10-13 minutes.
  3. Let the soup cool down a bit, then add the cashews (you may soak them first) and puree with immerse blender or regular blender. Add some boiled water if the soup is too thick.
  4. Garnish with parsley and enjoy!
