Rated 5 out of 5 by PattyAnne from OMG! Delish I have owned my Vitamix 7500 for 2 years and would be lost without it (cashew cream, oh my). After reading several other posts, I decided to roast my sweet potatoes with carrots, onion and apples at 425 until softened. They were seasoned with a very small amount of spray oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. When cooled, I added enough to fill 1/2 of my 64oz container along with about 1 3/4 cup veggie broth and veggie bouillon cube. I also added a big dash of cinnamon and 2 sprinkles of turmeric. I will probably make it again this week, it is so good. Sorry for no exact amounts! Thats how I cook. I am WFPB and now what I like! Give it a try!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TanyaZed from Easy base - but even better with added spice! I made this soup last night and it was super easy! Instead of baking the sweet potato I just cut it into small pieces and fried it with the onion to speed up the process. I also added a big clove of garlic to the frying process at the end. I also added some ginger, turmeric, curry, and a touch of cinnamon to give this soup some kick! I think this is a great base recipe that you may want to add some spice to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mrs G from Yummmmy! This recipe is super simple and delicious. I tripled the recipe because I had 3 sweet potatoes to use up. I also used only two carrots and no apple. To start the soup, as I do all soup, I used 1 whole yellow onion and 2 sticks of celery both diced and some fresh thyme. I sweated the vegetables and added 4 cloves of garlic at the end. Then I added 3 diced sweet potatoes. After cooking the veggies for about 10 minutes, I added some chicken stock. Simmered until veggies were fork tender. Added to blender and pureed away. It was pretty thick so I added a little more broth. Served hot with a dollup of sour cream. It was so good, plan to eat this for lunch this week and will make it again. Loving my new blender!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NicoleT from A Great Base Recipe My Vitamix arrived yesterday so I was anxious to try a simple recipe to get acquainted with the blender. The soup heated nicely at 6 minutes. Flavor was a bit bland and "carroty" for me as written. (I'm sure results and personal tastes will vary across the board). I added more sweet potato and onion. At the end - garnished with salt, pepper, pumpkin seeds and a teeny dash of cinnamon. I will make again and give two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mdlem from Deliciously Fresh I just made this soup in my 750. Turned out great! So fresh tasting!! I used Penzy's vegetable soup base instead of a boullion cube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Devil from Sweet Potato soup in about 10 minutes. I just bought my Vitamix 6500 this afternoon. Brought it home. Now what? So, I looked online, found this soup recipe and made it in about 10 minutes. And it was GOOD. I did not use apple, but I did throw in a big handful of kale. Hilariously easy and quite palatable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kinscherff from Super easy healthy and yummy! I love this soup super easy to make healthy and yummy to eat the Apple really alters the taste I like slightly less than half of a small apple. I also add a clove or two of garlic and sauté the garlic with the onions. I love this soup!
