❓How many sweet potatoes are in 2 pounds❓
Sweet potatoes naturally grow in a variety of shapes and sizes. We have found that it takes about 3 larger sweet potatoes to equal 2 pounds, or 6 medium to small sweet potatoes. It’s a good idea to use the scale in your grocery store to weigh out ingredients like sweet potatoes and potatoes.



1 tablespoon olive oil
1 white onion diced
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
2 pounds sweet potatoes peeled, cut into bite sized pieces
4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white or black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons sliced green onions or chives optional


1. Place a large soup pot on the stove over medium high heat. Add in olive oil and onion and saute until tender, about 7 minutes. Add in garlic and ginger and saute 1 minute more.

2. Add in sweet potatoes and season with salt and pepper. Pour in vegetable broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender, about 10-15 minutes.

3. Transfer the soup mixture to a blender and blend in batches until smooth, or use an immersion blender.

4. Return to a pot over low heat and add in the cheddar cheese. Stir until melted. Taste and add more salt if desired. Serve topped with green onions or chives.

I'm wondering what it would be like to add coconut milk instead of cheese and perhaps some fresh mushrooms, rosemary, and spinach.

Better idea, take out the cheese and add creme fraiche. You’ll get body and creaminess

I would prefer chicken broth, but maybe the intent was to keep the recipe vegan. (without the cream)
