Spicy Sweet Potato Soup


First Class Dining soup recipe, refreshing taste, full of flavour.

8 servings


  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced

  • 4 cups chicken stock

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root

  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • salt to taste

  • 1 large roma (plum) tomato, seeded and diced


  1. In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and lime zest. Set aside in the refrigerator to allow the flavors to blend.

  2. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add sweet potatoes, and chicken stock. Season with cumin, chili flakes and ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, until potatoes are tender.

  3. Puree the soup using an immersion blender or regular blender. If using a counter top blender, puree in small batches, filling the blender just a bit past half way to avoid spillage. Whisk peanut butter into the soup, and heat through. Stir in lime juice, and salt.

  4. Ladle into warm bowls, and top with a dollop of the reserved sour cream, a few pieces of diced tomato, and a sprinkle of cilantro.
