Sweet Potato & Carrot Soup with Peanut Crunch

© 2022 |

© 2021 |

This silky smooth, super versatile vegetarian soup is perfect for the fall and winter months. It's naturally gluten-free and quick and easy to make. The crunchy garam masala peanut topping makes it over-the-top delicious! It can also be frozen for future lunches and dinners. If you need it dairy-free, just use thick coconut cream (without the coconut water) and a teaspoon of lemon juice instead of crème fraîche.

Peanut CrunchSoup
  • 2 tbsp Honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 2 tsp Garam masala
  • 1 tsp Tomato paste
  • 100 g Unsalted roasted peanuts
  • Sea salt
  • Rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 150 g Carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cm Fresh ginger root, finely chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp Dried red chilli flakes
  • 500 g Sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 800 ml Vegetable stock
  • 100 ml Crème fraîche
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. To prepare the peanut crunch, mix honey, oil, garam masala, tomato paste and peanuts together. Spread on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Season. Bake in the mddle of hot oven for 12 minutes. Remove and sprinkle the chopped rosemary over. Set aside to cool.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and carrots and cook until softened. Stir in the ginger, garlic and chilli flakes and fry for 2–3 minutes, or until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the cubed sweet potatoes and stock. Turn up the heat and bring the pan to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer with the lid on for 20 minutes, or until the sweet potato is tender.
  4. Use a stick blender to process until smooth. Alternatively, tip it into a food processor and blend. Stir in crème fraîche. Taste and season.
  5. Serve in bowls topped with peanut crisp and a good grinding of black pepper.

...this looks new and yummy to me!

Brian 5/1/22 01:40

That looks fabulous, if only I wasn't allergic to peanuts.

J.P. Alexander 5/1/22 03:25

Se ve muy rico, gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso

Another great sounding flavour combination, which also looks delicious!

I would never have thought of using peanuts as soup topping, I generally stick to croutons, so this would make a lovely change!

I also only really enjoy a good thick, hearty soup, so I might be tempted to ease off a little on the liquid ingredients?

Thanks for sharing another triumph and have a good day! :)

Ooo. I would love this. Weather has been crazy lately. Monsoon season with strong wind and rain. A warm and comforting soup sounds good.

I love soups that have toppings! There is nothing like a good sweet potato and carrot soup, but your topping sure does take it up a few notches.

The soup looks yum 😀! I like it 😁.

DEZMOND 5/1/22 20:23

I do ever so love a carrot sweet potato or pumpkin soup! I'd ad some celery in it too, but the crunch is nice addition instead of croutons.

Eva Taylor 6/1/22 14:25

There is nothing more satisfying than a gorgeous, creamy soup on a freezing winter’s day and this one definitely fits the bill. That peanut crunch looks and sounds moreish, I too, love pairing a velvety, creamy soup with crunchy nuts or seeds.
