The Autumn season is swiftly approaching, and Sweet Potato is an appropriate flavor for it. So, I present you with this Sweet Potato and Bok Choy Soup! This Sweet Potato and Bok Choy Soup is not only delicious, but it’s easy to make. It only requires a few ingredients to season it nicely.
If you have been following these blogs for a while, then I am sure you are familiar with the fact that I try to use up the produce in my refrigerator. That is exactly how this soup came to be. I was giving my refrigerator its usual weekly clean-out and noticed that I had bok choy, onion and sweet potato left. I decided to make a soup and these three vegetables made for a beautiful combination. What I love about this recipe is that it requires minimal prep.
Let’s get into how to make this soup! To get started on making this Sweet Potato and Bok Choy Soup, wash one large sweet potato and one bok choy. Peel the sweet potato and chop it into cubes. Chop the bok choy into bite-sized pieces and dice a small onion. The diced onion in this soup gives off a powerful flavor that balances out the sweetness of the tender sweet potato and the unique flavor of the bok choy. If you do not want to use an onion, then feel free to use onion powder. Onion powder will also add a nice flavor.
Heat some grapeseed oil over medium-high and sear the onions, sweet potato, and boy choy for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add minced garlic. Fresh garlic or jarred garlic is just fine. Cook it for about 30 seconds. Then, add in the vegetable broth, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, to taste. Bring the mixture to a boil and then simmer with a lid for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, turn off the heat and give it a good stir. Allow the soup to rest for 10 minutes before serving and enjoying. You can give it a taste and adjust the salt and pepper to your liking. Season it however it suits your palate.
Serve this Sweet Potato and Boy Choy Soup with some crusty bread or crackers. Pretzel rolls are also a unique dipping tool! They give off a salty flavor. I hope that you enjoy this easy-to-make soup and quite possibly have it become a fall staple of yours!
