Description

Joanie made this soup for last week's cookbook club when we all cooked a recipe from Gwyneth Paltrow's, It's All Good Cookbook. It was so comforting and really felt like a cozy fall soup. Tonight, I made a batch and ate it along with lots of toasted Bub & Grandma's Sourdough bread.  

Get Started
Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, cilantro sprigs, cumin, and a large pinch of sea salt.

Step 4

Once the soup comes to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until the sweet potatoes are very soft, about 30 minutes. Remove and discard the cilantro.

Step 5

Carefully puree the soup in a powderful blender (make sure to keep the lid off and cover the top of the blender with a towel so the heat can escape. Start the blender on the lowest setting and very slowly increase the speed.)

Step 6

Garnish each bowl with the reserved cilantro and some olive oil.
