Coconut Curried Sweet Potato & Kale Soup

Oh, hello there!  Guess what I did Sunday morning?

kale potatoes and onion

Last week, as I was sitting at my desk at around 8 a.m., I was suddenly struck with an intense urge to make sweet potato and kale soup.

As soon as the thought entered my mind, I grabbed a notepad and started to jot down ingredients.

And then, completely out of nowhere, I thought of curry, and in that moment I knew what I had to do.  I wouldn’t just make sweet potato and kale soup, I’d make Curried Sweet Potato & Kale Soup

And then my head exploded.

Let me just get these two things out there:

  1. Before Sunday, I’d never curried anything in my life.
  2. I’d also never created a soup recipe completely from scratch. Ever.

It didn’t matter. I was on a mission.

When Jeff and I wandered into the produce section at Wegmans on Saturday afternoon, I still had no idea what I was doing. But, somehow, I figured it out.

And, let me tell you, this soup is delicious. The combination of roasted sweet potatoes, warm curry spices, and crunchy kale makes it the perfect fall soup. (It’s even vegan!)

Serve it with crusty bread on a chilly night and you’re good to go!

  1. Sounds good! I bet you could just roast the sweet potatoes in coconut oil, too.

    We use coconut oil All The Time – Adam made roasted butternut squash with it that was pretty awesome.

    1. Sarah,

      I actually thought about doing that after I roasted them. Will definitely try it next time.

      This was my first time using coconut oil. It’s delicious and smells wonderful, too!

  2. Winter is really the only time I like eating soup. I’m not into “summery” soups, as they tend to be kinda thin and wimpy. I love my soups to be super hearty, full of chunky vegetable goodness. I also love a little slight sweetness in my savory dishes. Just a hint, something naturally sweet, of course…. another reason that sweet potatoes are the best thing ever. They can be used in savory dishes, sweets, baked goods… anything! In this case, they definitely come front and center in this sweet potato kale bean soup.
