Curried Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Curried sweet potato soup is the quintessential autumn soup!

Fall is here, and I have to tell you, I’m very excited about it!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. All those pumpkins, turning leaves, apple harvests, burning fire places scenting the air outdoors and all those warm, comfy sweaters put me right in my element. There’s no better time of year to be in the kitchen, creating some warm and wonderful comfort food!

Clean Eating Curried Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

This soup may very well be one of my new favorite comfort foods too! It’s thick, a tad creamy, bursting with curry spice, and oh so warm and cozy in the tummy.  I served this with some Clean Eating English Muffins, and for the 15 minutes it took me to eat a bowl of this deliciousness, I was in shear, elemental heaven.


While I’m definitely not a nutritionist, (so please don’t take this as medical advice. It’s not.) I have read over the years about the health benefits of curry. Curry has been said to help with:

  • Inflammation
  • Cancer
  • Alzheimers
  • Poor digestion
  • Bone growth

I’m sure much of this is due to the turmeric content, but the other spices in curry can be just as beneficial. So do your own research on this, but that list sounds good enough for me to happily enjoy curry in as many dishes as I can put it in. I love curry!

  • 3 lbs. sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into chunks)

  • 15 oz. can light coconut milk
  • 1 small apple (peeled and cut into chunks)

  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

  • Place all ingredients into a large soup pot and bring to a medium boil.
  • Cook at a medium boil until the apples and sweet potatoes are soft.

    This sounds delicious! I made a butternut squash soup the other night that I think could be one of my new favorites! I love a good vegetable soup this time of year. One that is over loaded with fresh veggies!

  13. This is soooooo yummy! Just wondering… I’m trying to enter the recipe info into MyFitnessPal, and I can’t figure out the nutrition information for 3 lbs of sweet potatoes. How did you figure it out? Because all my calculations give me WAY more calories per serving of soup than you have listed. Thanks!

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Hmmm…. I entered it into It’s possible there is a big difference between the two. I’m finding that these calculators are not very reliable at all. Double check your measurements on MFP and if they are right, then I would go with that. They tend to be a bit more accurate.

  17. As a recently diagnosed kidney patient, I freaked a little about what I could now eat. Most of my recipes are going to be hard to adapt to my new eating requirements. Although I need to eat sweet potatoes sparingly, a cup of this loveliness won’t affect me. It’s simmering on the stove right now, making the house smell wonderful. Thank you!

    I just made this for lunch, and it definitely gets my seal of approval! The ginger and curry make it a little spicy, but the coconut milk keeps it cool — the flavors work great together!

    I don’t have an immersion blender, so I baked, peeled, mashed, and refrigerated my sweet potatoes. This way, I did not have to put hot liquids in a blender.
