Simple Sweet Potato and Ginger Soup

6-8 servings


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 3 large sweet potatoes (pink, orange, or yellow variety), peeled and chopped
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until golden.
  • Pour in the broth and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and ginger, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a fork (about 20 to 25 minutes).
