I love this Sweet and Spicy Autumn Cream Soup because it’s very easy to make, tastes great and you get tons of healthy nutrients out of the box. This soup is gluten-free and egg-free, and optionally dairy-free.
This is a simple recipe that I’ve put together based on the ingredients that we had in our fridge, but it turned out so delicious that I had to post it on the website.
This kind of soup can be served as lunch or dinner, but also works great when served as a recovery meal after an intense run/workout or when you simply need to recharge quickly.
Steps to make Sweet and Spicy Autumn Cream Soup
The base of this cream soup is made using different cooked vegetables, while the creamy texture is obtained by adding full-fat sour cream or coconut milk before blending together all the ingredients. You’ll need a blender in order to puree the ingredients into a cream, but no other special tools are required.
Here’s how you prepare this sweet and spicy cream soup:
- Cook the vegetables for a few minutes, until they become tender.
- Once the veggies are cooked, separate the water (don’t throw it away) and add everything into the blender.
- Also add full-fat sour cream (or coconut milk), spices and salt. Also add a bit of water but not too much.
- Blend everything until you reach the desired consistency.
- Pour into a plate, garnish and serve. Enjoy a delicate cream soup!
How to serve this sweet and spicy cream soup
Don’t you think this kind of soup should be present more often on our table? I mean, it’s delicious, nutritious and super easy to make. You can serve it by its own or with any of the following extras:
- Olives – I love green olives, kalamata olives or other variations. Since this soup tends to be a bit on the sweet side, salty olives are the perfect match. Olives are loaded with healthy fats so they will definitely keep you in the low-carb zone.
- Nuts – I’ve recently discovered that I like to eat my soup with nuts – walnuts or pecans are my favorites! Nuts add plenty of healthy nutrients to any meal, but they’re also a bit crunchy and match perfectly with this cream soup. I always choose raw nuts without added salt (organic, if possible).
- Bread – Bread may not be the healthiest food to eat, but I’m always up for 1-2 slices of sourdough bread. You could also pair this soup with a slice of homemade loaf, low-carb bread, gluten-free bread or even with a pretzel.
- Cheese – If you enjoy cheeses, this soup is a great way to serve a few slices of hard yellow cheeses. My favorite cheeses to pair with this soup are Cheddar cheese (Uk) Emmental cheese (Germany) or Comté cheese (France).
Give this recipe a try and I bet you won’t regret it! This soup works great when you want something that’s quick, tasty and healthy to eat. It’s guaranteed to nourish you from the inside out and it’s great for your gut flora as well. Did I mention that it tastes awesome?
