Dairy-free Sweet Potato Broccoli Soup (Paleo, Whole30, GF)

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
A flavorful and nutrient-filled soup that is creamy and sweet. It is so delicious, you'd never guess that it was naturally Paleo, Whole30, and Gluten-free.


  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes, sliced
  • 1.5 tsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic, (this was 3 cloves for me)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups minced broccoli, ( this was 1/2 of a head of broccoli minced in a food processor for me)
  • 3 cups chicken broth or stock
  • 2 Tbs coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 cups canned coconut cream, (one 14 ounce can) (I like Savoy)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • a dash of nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp rubbed sage
  • optional cooked bacon, crumbled
  • optional crumbled goat cheese, (skip to keep the soup strictly Paleo, Whole30 or Dairy-free)


  • Heat a large pot of water over high heat until the water boils. Add the sliced sweet potatoes. Cook the sweet potatoes for 15-20 minutes, until fork tender.
  • Drain the sweet potatoes and if you didn't peel them beforehand, remove the skin. ( I find it easier to remove the skin after they are cooked). Set aside.
  • Then, put 2 tsp of olive oil in a large soup pan and heat over medium heat. Add the garlic to the pan and mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring every so often.
  • Add the minced broccoli and onion powder to the pan, mix, then cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the chicken broth to the pan, mix and let the mixture cook ( it should be lightly boiling) for 2 minutes. Then add the coconut flour and whisk until it is evenly distributed.
  • Then, add the coconut cream, salt, pepper, nutmeg, chili powder, and rubbed sage to the soup and whisk. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Put the sliced sweet potatoes into the soup and either use an immersion blender to mix everything together or pour everything into a blender and mix. Pour the soup back into the soup pan and serve, or reheat to desired temperature and then serve.


Note: this soup tastes great with crumbled up bacon and goat cheese, but don't use it to keep the recipe Paleo, Whole30 or Dairy-free
Note:If you want the soup to be more liquidy, you can add more chicken broth. Season to taste.
