Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato (13-15 oz)
  • 6 oz fresh carrots
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1-2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 TBSP unsalted butter
  • 3 TBSP all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt to taste

GARLIC BREAD CROUTONS

  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 TBSP butter
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika

TASTY TOPPINGS

  • a sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • Sriracha

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel and chop you veggies, drizzle with EVOO, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Roast on a lined baking sheet on the center rack for 30-40 minutes.
  4. Bring a medium pot to medium-low heat and melt your butter.
  5. Next add the flour, slowly, whisking into the butter to form a roux. Stir constantly while the roux thickens, then slowly whisk in your veggie broth.
  6. Add your roasted veggies and season with 1/8 tsp cinnamon and 1/8 tsp salt, adjusting amounts to taste as needed. You can also thin the broth to your idea of perfect consistency using a little extra broth! My husband prefers thin soups; I like mine thick! Both are glorious! Simply adjust seasoning to taste if you add additional broth, easy peasy.
  7. Blend soup using an immersion blender, or in batches using a blender or food processor.
  8. Serve hot, topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon and crispy garlic bread croutons. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

For the optional garlic bread croutons: pre-heat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F. Chop bread into small cubes, drizzle with garlic-spiked butter with a pinch of salt, and toss to coat. Top with sesame seeds (optional but tasty) and sprinkle with paprika. Toast until golden brown.
