Iâ€™ve been meaning to try sweet potatoes in vegetable soup for a while now, and Iâ€™m glad I finally did! Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite comfort foods; partly because you can have it anytime but mostly because itâ€™s absolutely delicious.
This is such an amazing cozy soup loaded with carrots, zucchini, coconut milk for richness and a squeeze of lime for a light, bright and tangy broth.
Feel free to change up the vegetable as long as you slice them pretty small and about the same size. You could try adding in spinach, broccoli or mushrooms. This is completely meatless but some crumbled sausages would go beautifully in this soup. Either way rain or shine, youâ€™ll want a hot bowl of this soup all year long!
