Sweet Potato Soup {Dairy Free}


Grey days and a chilly wind – yep, autumn is here, and winter is just around the corner.

This soup is THE perfect way to warm you up and is super easy to make!  I’ll let you in on a little secret:  I’ve never actually made soup from scratch before.  But there’s a first time for everything, and this one turned out really well!

I used sweet potatoes, chicken broth, celery and a bit of allspice.  The allspice gives the soup a wonderfully savoury taste, but you could also try cinnamon instead.

Sweet Potato Soup {Dairy Free}

Yield: 5 1/2 Cups (about 5 servings)

Sweet Potato Soup {Dairy Free}


  • 3 medium size sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 celery stalk, minced
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/4 tsp allspice


  1. Boil the peeled and cubed sweet potatoes in water until they are very soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Boil chicken broth, minced celery and allspice until celery is tender, about 10 minutes (maybe less).
  3. Remove broth mixture from heat. Pour in boiled sweet potatoes.
  4. Blend or puree with a blender, food processor, or hand mixer.
  5. Serve with crackers, or my favourite bread, garlic naan.


I’m kind of crazy, but I like to keep my kitchen appliances to a minimum.  So, I don’t have a blender.  Instead I used my hand mixer and beat the soup until it was as smooth as possible.  It’s not as smooth as pureeing it in a blender would be, but I like a little substance in my soup anyway.

This might be my new favourite soup!

What’s your favourite soup to enjoy on chilly fall days?
