This creamy sweet potato carrot soup is so delicious and heartwarming, especially during the cold weather. You get all the beneficial nutrients of both potatoes and carrots in one bowl. The soup has a comforting and tasty flavor that is so satisfying.
This soup reminds me of those old days when I was a little girl, and we had a potato garden in our backyard. Whenever we harvested the potatoes, my mom would make different sweet potato recipes but the one we enjoyed most, was the soup.
We would finish whatever we were served and ask for more. This soup is equivalent to my mom’s recipe though it doesn’t have any butter added to it. The cashew milk makes it even creamier and healthier.
