This Indian-spiced soup gets its rich, creamy texture from pureed sweet potatoes, not heavy cream. Lime adds a nice bright note.


Olive oil

1 Tbsp, extra-virgin

Uncooked onion(s)

4 cup(s), chopped

Kosher salt

1 tsp

Minced garlic

1 Tbsp

Ginger root

1 Tbsp, minced

Curry powder

2 tsp

Garam masala

½ tsp

Reduced-sodium chicken broth

6 cup(s)

Uncooked sweet potato(es)

2½ pound(s), peeled, chopped (about 5 medium)

Fresh lime juice

2 tsp, optional


8 tsp, fresh, chopped


  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick pot over medium heat. Add onion and salt; cook, stirring often, until onion has softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, curry powder and garam masala; stir and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add broth and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until potato is soft, about 15 to 20 minutes. Puree soup in pot using an immersion blender (or transfer to a blender and puree in batches). Stir in lime juice (if using) and serve each bowl garnished with cilantro. Yields about 1 cup per serving.


This recipe would be equally delicious made with cubed butternut squash.
