Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with Quinoa Recipe (No Cream)


Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with Quinoa Recipe (Dairy-Free) by Cookin' Canuck

If you didn’t catch yesterday’s announcement, I am hosting this month’s Monthly Mingle and we’re celebrating SQUASHES. Show me what you’ve got! In keeping with the fall vegetable theme, I had to share this silky, creamy (but healthy) sweet potato and quinoa soup. And yes, it’s been a quinoa kind of week, kicking off with a Quinoa Salad with Apple, Chickpeas & Apple Cider Vinaigrette on Monday.

First, sweet potatoes are roasted, then mixed with sautéed carrots, onions and garlic, and simmered in vegetable broth. After a quick puree, the mixture is combined with quinoa. And then comes the pièce de resistance…the toasted breadcrumb and Parmesan topping. Do NOT miss out on this part. The buttery crunch adds wonderful texture to the smooth soup.

A big thanks goes out to Tara of Noshing with the Nolands. She posted this recipe on The Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen site, and it’s beautiful color and flavors practically begged me to make it.

I’ll totally have to try that. I love fall soups!

I’m a butternut squash addict. I can’t get enough of this stuff in any form this time of year :)


12 Becky at Vintage Mixer October 4, 2012 at 5:09 pm

And now I’m completely embarrassed because it’s obviously sweet potato not butternut squash… you had me fooled :) Well in that case, I’ll have to try this one because I’ve never made Sweet Potato Soup!

Great recipe without cream! I’ve got to give this healthy soup a try :)

Man, I love fall, not only because we Zonies finally get a break from triple digits but mostly because it hosts all of my favorite veggies! I love this soup and am headed over to bookmark the Apple-chickpea-quinoa salad right away.

This looks absolutely delicious! Where I’m currently based in Korea I often eat sweet potatoes, but I’ve never had them in a soup before!

Looks incredible! You know the Italian word for a puréed soup like this is ‘crema’ and it never has cream–the word refers to the creamy texture. And I love the idea of that crispy, savory topping, must make a great contrast in flavor and texture.
