Sweet Potato Power Soup
As the weather cools down, everyone loves a nice warm bowl of soup! However, as we preach to our nutrition clients, there has to be an adequate balance of macronutrients, which is not always easy to find with soup. This unique sweet potato protein soup provides an adequate amount of protein to balance out the fat and carbs.
1 tsp. coconut oil
1 small red onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large cooked sweet potato (broiled, baked, or roasted until soft)
1 Tbsp. unflavored pea protein powder
2 cups coconut or almond milk
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
- Heat coconut oil in large soup pot on high heat. Add onion and garlic, and stir. Turn heat down to medium. Cover pot and let cook for 5-10 minutes, or until onion is soft and slightly caramelized.
- Add cooked sweet potato, milk, protein powder, and seasonings. Liquefy the vegetables with the rest of the ingredients, using an immersion blender. Optionally, let mixture cool, blend in a regular blender, and reheat before serving. If soup is too thick, add milk to desired consistency.
This delicious cup of soup provides comfort and warmth for the fall days. Adding unflavored pea protein provides nutrition and will leave you feeling satisfied. Enjoy!
