Crock Pot Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potato/Carrot Soup

There is nothing better than warm soup on a cold day, especially when you can use your crock pot! This delicious soup is not only very healthy, it is paleo, gluten-free, dairy free, Whole30 approved, and it is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. You'll love it!

Also, feel free to experiment with this soup. You can add or substitute squash or other veggies for the ones that I suggest. Change up the spices if you want. Be creative!

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potato/Carrot Soup

You will need:
  • 2 Large sweet potatoes or 3 smaller ones, peeled and cubed
  • 2 Large carrots
  • 14 oz of coconut milk
  • 1 cup chicken stock or water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • sprinkling of black pepper, red pepper flakes, and cayenne pepper
  • handful of parsley and chives
Throw all these ingredients in your crock pot. Turn the crock pot on medium and cook for about 3-4 hours.

It looks white when you first put it all in the crock pot. But, after several hours of cooking, use an immersion blender or dump the crock pot into your blender and blend it all up really nicely. Then, you get this beautiful orange color, and the taste is divine!
I couldn't even wait to take a picture to dig in (as you can see, my bowl is already half empty). This was a hit with our whole family, and they were begging for more!

Share your creative twists on this healthy crock pot soup. I am eager to hear what you do with it!
