Spicy Curried Sweet Potato Soup (Paleo and GF Approved)


I only eat paleo these days and sometimes it's hard to find recipes that are fast and easy to make. One beautiful Arizona day, I realized I was really hungry, but was also totally unwilling to head to the store. So I scraped together what ingredients I had and was pretty pleased with the end result. This is the first recipe I've ever shared here, so I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! Garnish with some Thai basil and avocado pieces (maybe even a little bacon) and enjoy the heck out of this thing!

4 servings


  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

  • 2 cups beef broth

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

  • 1 small shallot, minced

  • 2 tablespoons grade B maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons curry powder

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon Spanish smoked paprika


  1. Combine sweet potatoes and beef broth in a pot; cook over medium-high heat until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Mash sweet potatoes into the broth using a potato masher.

  2. Mix coconut milk, shallot, maple syrup, curry powder, sea salt, chili powder, and paprika into sweet potato mixture; cook and stir until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and blend soup with a hand blender until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

For vegetarian eaters, you could substitute the beef broth with vegetable broth.

For those avoiding sodium in their diet, choose a low-sodium broth and cut the 1 teaspoon of sea salt down to 1/2 teaspoon.
