3 medium sweet potatoes, (or 2 large)


½ cup Sunsweet Amaz!n Prunes


1 orange, juice & zest


1 Tbsp oil or butter


½ onion, chopped, (or quartered for roasting)


4 cups vegetable broth, (32oz)


⅓ cup coconut milk, or heavy cream


½ tsp salt, (to taste, depending on sodium in broth)


black pepper, to taste


Optional Toppings


Greek yogurt


toasted pecans, (toasted at 350°F for 10 minutes)


diced prunes


chopped chives


Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).
Poke holes on all sides of sweet potatoes with a fork and wrap each individually in foil. Place on a baking sheet and roast 45-60 minutes (depending on size), until cooked through and tender. When cooled to the touch, peel skins.
Place prunes in a single layer in an oven-safe baking dish. Add orange zest & juice of ½ an orange. Cover dish with foil and roast at 425°F for 15-20 minutes.
In a saucepan over medium heat, saute onion in butter (o roil) for 4-5 minutes. (Or, peel & quarter ½ onion, rub with oil & salt, and roast at 425°F for 30-35 minutes.)
Let components cool slightly before blending to prevent the blender from overheating.
Add all soup ingredients to a blender and blend for 1½-2 minutes, until pureed and creamy.
Transfer blended soup to a pot and heat over the stove for 5-10 minutes, until warmed through. (Or serve and enjoy cold.)
Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt, toasted pecans, diced prunes—or whatever you like!
Yields ~8 cups roasted sweet potato soup.
