Satisfyingly Simple Sweet Potato Soup in the Instant Pot

9 Dec

I have been travelling recently and returned home quite sick and tired of overly processed and seasoned restaurant food. I just wanted something healthy, simple, and pure. Having just been researching more about the Okinawan Diet, I bought a bag of sweet potatoes and wanted water-dense food or in other words: soup. This is so easy to do with the help of my Instant Pot.

Place all in the Instant Pot in order:

  • 2 large leeks, sliced
  • 4 celery sticks, chopped
  • 4# sweet potato, peeled and chopped in big chunks (I had a mix of Asian and orange sweet potatoes. Wish I had more purple ones!)
  • 3 tsp dried thyme
  • 8 c water

Set for 10 minutes. When done, allow the pressure to come down naturally or do a quick release. Then, add:

  • 4 tsp sea salt

Purée with an immersion blender. Garnish with scallions, cilantro, or seeds and serve with your choice of condiments (nutritional yeast, Bragg’s Amino, etc). Or enjoy this satisfyingly simple sweet potato soup as is.
