SWEET POTATO SOUP with Collagen Peptides
Time: 75 min. / Servings: 4
With flu + cold season in full swing, sweet potato soup is the perfect recipe for soothing in case you're feeling under the weather. Made with butternut squash + sweet potatoes, this warm + fragrant soup is ideal for winter nights.
4 medium sweet potatoes
1 large leek, thinly sliced
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1 12-16oz bag of frozen, cubed butternut squash
2 tbsp Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil
1 32-oz container of chicken or veggie broth (low or no sodium)
1/2 tbsp sea salt
1 tsp white pepper
3 scoops Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides
Pull the bag of butternut squash from the freezer + allow it to defrost overnight in your fridge.
Pre-heat your oven to 375ºF.
Scrub + poke the sweet potatoes with a fork multiple times. Place the cubes on a baking sheet.
Roast the sweet potatoes for about 35 to 45 minutes (or until soft and fragrant).
Remove from oven + allow them to cool.
In a pan, heat Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil over medium heat. Add the leeks + turn the heat down to medium-low heat. Sauté for about ten minutes, stirring the leeks every couple of minutes so they don't burn. After about eight minutes, add the garlic to the pan and keep the contents moving so the garlic doesn't burn.
In a high-speed blender, add the leak-garlic mixture, butternut squash + two sweet potatoes (with the skins removed). Add the room temperature broth, sea salt + white pepper. Blend on high until mixture is smooth.
Add the remaining two skinless sweet potatoes + the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides + blend again. If the mixture is too thick, add more broth (1/4 cup at a time) until you get to the consistency you want. If you do not have extra broth, just add water.
Add more salt + pepper to taste.
Optional: Add 1/4 cup browned ground dark turkey or beef.
