It’s winter here in Australia, and with sweet potatoes being so cheap right now, it’s the perfect time to try this Roasted Sweet Potato Soup.  It is such a simple but flavour filled soup.  The maple syrup adds an amazing sweetness, and it all just works so well together.  It’s perfect served on a cold winters night with some crusty bread.  This soup freezes extremely well, so make up a big batch and freeze some for a night when you don’t feel like cooking, or in smaller batches for individual lunch sized servings.


Roasted Sweet Potato Soup

Roasted Sweet Potato Soup


  • 850g sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon garlic, crushed
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup cream
  • fresh or dried oregano leaves


Preheat the oven to 180c. Place the sweet potato and onion into a roasting dish and drizzle with the olive oil and maple syrup. Stir to combine and roast for around 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Once the vegetables are roasted, add to a large saucepan along with the crushed garlic and chicken stock. Let simmer for around 5 minutes, then blend using a hand stick blender or ordinary blender until the soup is smooth.

Stir 3/4 of the cream through the soup. Spoon into serving bowls, swirl the remaining cream over the soup, and sprinkle with a little oregano.

I love your use of maple syrup in this. Will be making it when it gets cooler for sure. Thanks so much for linking up to YWF.

Sounds great! I think adding some avocado for creaminess instead of the cream would work too (for those of us who can't handle the dairy). I love roasting my veg before they go into soup. One of my faves is roasting carrots, fennel and apples for a delish soup. I will try this one soon!
