Vegan MoFo Day 22 - Apple Sweet Potato soup...

So a friend mentioned on Facebook this morning about making a spiced apple soup with some of her frozen left over apple harvest from this year (Breckany, you are my muse).  Then I get home from work and I am doing a fridge raid to try and grab up all my straggler produce to figure out whats for dinner. I saw a bag of tiny crimson apples sitting in my fridge, so soup it is!  All ingredients are approximate since I didn't measure anything except for the broth, adjust accordingly to your preference.  I love the flavor of rosemary and apple thanks to a remark on a scone recipe by Isa, and the liquid smoke adds that nice smokey flavor you might remember from your days of eating bacon.

Garnished with a bit of nooch, fresh pepper,
and some rosemary from the cutting board.
Apple Sweet Potato and Carrot Spiced Soup


Ingredients:

  • 4 small or 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced
  • 3 medium carrots, diced
  • 1lbs apple, cored and diced (I didn't peel mine)
  • 4 cups of veggie broth
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Cloves
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Paprica
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke
  • 3 Tbsp Tamari or Brags Liquid Aminos
  • 1 Tbsp fresh finely chooped rosemary
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1tbsp flour


Directions:

  1. Sweat the carrots and onion in olive oil till the onions are translucent
  2. Add veggie broth and sweet potato, and bring to a simmer.
  3. Add spices, liquid smoke, and liquid aminos, cover, and cook for about 15 minutes
  4. Add in apple and let cook an additional 5 minutes, or until apple is cooked slightly but still crisp on the inside.
  5. Remove about 1/4c of the liquid, and whisk with the flour, then re-add and stir into pot, let simmer for an extra minute.

If you try this let me know how it turns out, or maybe what you do to change it up.
