Apple-Sweet Potato Soup with Apple Yogurt Topper

Servings: 6

Total Time: 30 minutes


1 tablespoon olive oil

1 (10-oz) bag frozen seasoning blend (diced onions, celery, bell peppers)

1 tablespoon minced roasted garlic

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons chipotle and roasted garlic seasoning

1 orange, for juice

4 large sweet apples

1 cup refrigerated mashed sweet potatoes

2 cups apple juice

2 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth

1/4 cup presliced green onions

1/4 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt

2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds


Preheat large stockpot on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Add oil, seasoning blend, garlic, chili powder, and seasoning; cook 3–4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until vegetables are tender.

Squeeze orange for juice (1/2 cup) and add to pot; reduce heat to medium and cook 4–5 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove vegetable mixture from heat and place in blender.

Chop apples coarsely (reserving 1 cup). Place apples in blender with sweet potatoes, apple juice, and broth; blend until smooth.

Pour mixture into same stockpot and return to medium heat; simmer 10–12 minutes or until flavors have blended. Chop reserved 1 cup apples finely. Stir chopped apples, onions, yogurt, and pumpkin seeds in medium bowl until blended. Serve soup topped with yogurt mixture and additional pumpkin seeds, if desired.
