Every year when the season starts and I see honeycrisp apples in the store, I buy wayyyyy too many of them. They are so perfectly sweet and wonderful! I love cooking and baking with them too.
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?!
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed into 2-inch pieces
2 small honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored, and diced
1 tablespoon olive oil (plus more for drizzling)
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
salt and pepper
4 cups vegetable broth
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the sweet potatoes in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil and some cinnamon. Gently toss the potatoes in the oil. Roast the sweet potatoes until tender, about 20-25 minutes.
- While the potatoes are roasting, put the diced apples in a large sauce pan. Cover with water. Simmer the apples until tender over medium low heat, about 15 minutes.
- Drain the water and remove the apples from the pan. Turn the heat up to medium and add the 1 tablespoons of olive oil. Saute the onions until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. 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.
