The Easiest Roasted Sweet Potato Soup

Fall is the best, not only because of chunky scarves and layers, but because it is officially soup season. It’s the time of year to come home at night and enjoy a warming, healthy dish that requires minimal heavy-lifting. Anything that simmers on it’s own for 30 minutes and allows for some wind-down time is a win in my book.

Sweet potatoes are a major source of beta-carotene (vitamin A), vitamin C and manganese – all of which are amazing for skin, hair and bone health. This recipe could not be easier and it has major flavor. Here’s how it’s done and to watch a video on this recipe head right this way:

You will need:
1 lb sweet potato
2 large shallots
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp fresh thyme, minced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 cups chicken stock
Greek yogurt (optional)
