Apple Sweet Potato Soup with sage on top

One more fall recipe before we move onto all things holidays and Christmas! This I actually first made this soup like 6 years ago and then sort of forgot about it as often happens when you have a food blog. It popped back in my head a few weeks back and I couldn’t stop thinking about it because I remembering really enjoying it.

You might be thinking that there is no such thing as too many honeycrisp apples, but this is a real thing. Last weekend I had a few apples sitting around that were about to go bad and a large sweet potato that was also on its way out. So, I decided a perfect Apple Sweet Potato Soup would be the perfect way to use everything up!

This soup is truly fall in a bowl. It’s warm and comforting. Maddie also loves this soup! It’s great for a quick dinner. It’s also vegan so make it for a meat-free meal and serve it with warm and crusty bread! Oh, and did I mention it freezes well too?!

Recipe Tips and Suggestions:

  • I love using honeycrisp apples in this recipe, but you can use other red apples like gala or fuji. I don’t recommend using green apples for this recipe. The sweetness of red apples pairs better with the sweet potatoes.
  • You can swap chicken broth for the veggie broth if desired.
  • To garnish the soup, I like drizzling some cream or creme fraiche. Toasted pecans or walnuts are also great for sprinkling on top and add texture to the soup. Crispy sage leaves taste great too!
  • You can blend the soup in a high-powered blender, food processor, or hand blender. I prefer to use the immersion blender in this recipe. Easy peasy!

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Add the apples and sweet potatoes back into the pan. Pour in 3 cups of the broth. Use an immersion blender or pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth and until desired consistency is reached). Stir in the remaining cup of broth (can add even more if needed). If using a blender, transfer the soup back to the pan. Stir in the cinnamon and ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat to medium low and cook for another 10-15 minutes. Serve.
