Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Ginger Soup

Today was my first time reading about the “live, raw water” craze that seems to be sweeping some areas of the country. Have you heard of this movement where “unfiltered, untreated, un-sterilized spring water” is being sold for (IMO) astronomical sums of mullah? Apparently, proponents of “live, raw water” belive that it is brimming with beneficial bacteria and naturally occuring minerals and happens to be free of chlorine and fluoride, the way water was destined to be consumed. These proponents are shelling out around $38+ for 2.5 gallons of this stuff!

I am not sure I could shell out that much money for water – which carries the chance that that “beneficial bacteria” might not be quite so “beneficial” …know what I mean? Now, maybe if said water was flavored with coffee AND chocolate … maybe… buuuuuuuut then again… not sure if all that toilet-time and emptier pockets would be worth it…

What I AM sure of is the consumption of bowlfuls of this Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Ginger Soup! Now, no raw water was used in the making of this soup. Just coconut milk, vegetable stock, cayenne pepper, turmeric, grated fresh ginger and roasted sweet potatoes. The cayenne pepper is completely optional, but, I like a little kick to balance off the sweet of the sweet potatoes, and my daughter said that slight spicy kick was addicting!

I made this soup super thick – almost sauce like! But, please feel free to add in more stock to thin it out according to your preferences. We enjoyed this soup with naan one night, Sri Lankan Coconut Roti another night (recipe coming on Thursday) and poured over roasted broccoli on yet another night. We have been having highs in the 30s F (-1 C) around these parts of North East-ish GA this past week or so (the winter temps that kept eluding us in December have decided to make a bold appearance this January)! So warming up with a bowl of soup has become a favorite evening tradition in our home – especially filling and healthy ones like this Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Ginger Soup – which I am hoping will become a favorite in your home as well ~ when you give it a try…

This slightly spicy, slightly sweet, completely filling, unintentionally vegan, intentionally Easy Roasted Sweet Potato Ginger Soup calls for six simple ingredients and is one of our favorite soups this time of year – hoping it becomes one of your favorites too!


  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup coconut milk (I used full fat coconut milk)
  • 2.5 cups vegetable stock, can add more for a thinner soup
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil
  • pepper flakes (to garnish - again optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. While oven is preheating, peel and dice sweet potatoes (they cook quicker and blend easier this way). Then pour a tablespoon or so of olive oil onto diced sweet potatoes and rub them to make sure they are coated evenly with olive oil. Then set them to bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.
  3. When sweet potatoes are baked, add them to a blender, along with coconut milk, vegetable stock, turmeric, cayenne pepper and ginger and blend well till creamy.
  4. Serve with chili flakes and bread of your choice.

I seriously doubt anyone would use a cup of coconut oil. Perhaps you meant coconut milk?

Hey Raven - yup, it's coconut milk and not coconut oil.

What a gorgeous soup my friend. I love it thick like this. Anything with ginger, count me in. We need all the warm things up here in the tundra. It's been freezing, not to mention we are expecting 4-8" of snow overnight. Of course the kids are psyched re: school. I'm a little concerned because all the boys (except Hudson) are at a Celtics game tonight and will be driving back from Boston in the white stuff. Anywho - loving this thick and filling soup. No, have not heard of raw water and sounds like I may not have missed much, except holding on to a few billion pesos in this craze. But thanks for the education. Now that you've told me about it, I'll see raw water every which way I look . Happy New Year my friend. xo

This soup looks absolutely mouthwatering! I've actually never had sweet potato soup before so I'm long overdue to give it a try! As far as raw water goes, I consider myself open-minded but this craze is too much for me. I moved to Portland, OR a couple years ago and discovered the city doesn't put fluoride into the water source. That's "raw" enough for me :)
