This easy, healthy buffalo sweet potato soup is satisfying and jam-packed with most delicious flavour. The vegan soup is flavoured with coconut milk, fresh basil, and a little heat. I must admit I have been addicted to my Instant Pot because everything cooks so much faster and your retain more vitamins than you would by cooking on the stovetop even steaming. The best part is, once you set the Instant Pot to cook, you can walk away, how easy is that? If you don’t have an Instant Pot, follow the same steps, except the cooking time extends to about 35 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender. I love to serve this soup with my most popular keto nut-free pumpkin seed bread. On a side note, sweet potatoes are antioxidant powerhouses, they are anti-inflammatory and support healthy vision. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. GF paprika
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, (about 1 lb.) peeled and diced
  • 1 (13.5-oz) can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 cups GF vegetable broth or water
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp. GF hot sauce (I used 2 Tbsp.)
  • 1 Tbsp. Apple cider vinegar
  • 
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • Optional toppings; chili oil, pumpkin seeds, GF croutons, coconut cream
  • Instructions

  • Set Instant Pot to sauté. Add olive oil, once heated add onions and garlic. Sauté for 3 minutes. Stir in paprika and turn the Instant Pot off
  • Add all other ingredients, except the fresh basil. Cover, select the manual setting and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes
  • Once done cooking, use the quick release function and release the steam
  • Transfer to a high-speed blender and add basil. Blend until creamy. You can also use an immersion blender and blend the soup right in the Instant Pot. I used an immersion blender, less clean up :-)
  • Taste and adjust salt if needed. If the soup is too thick add a little more broth or water until you reach desired consistency. Serve with desired toppings. Enjoy!
