Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Sweet Potato and Cranberry Soup

Serves 8 to 10
Antioxidant-rich sweet potatoes get a colorful twist with the addition of cranberries. This soup can be prepared in advance and refrigerated for two days or frozen for one month. Serve it hot, topped with a drizzle of cranberry puree.

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 4 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 (12-16 ounce) can or jar prepared whole cranberry sauce
  • 4 cups gluten-free, dairy-free vegetable or chicken broth
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss onions, carrots and sweet potatoes in olive oil and roast them in a large, heavy roasting pan for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally (about every 15 minutes).
2. While vegetables are cooking, puree cranberry sauce in a blender until smooth. Set aside.

3. Place roasted vegetables in a large stockpot. Add broth, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, white pepper and salt. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are very soft.
4. In a blender or food processor, puree the soup in batches.* Add water as needed to achieve desired consistency.
5. Ladle hot soup into individual bowls and drizzle cranberry puree decoratively over the top of each serving.

TIP
Take care when processing hot liquids in a blender. Hot soup will expand when processed so don’t fill the blender more than half full. To avoid being burned by any spattering soup, cover the blender with a dish towel before turning it on.
