Fall was always my favorite time of the year in NY. After hibernating in the summer, I would start my fall with soup recipes. My favorite was always the sweet potato soup with a heavy dose of ginger.
I find that vegan soups are some of the most popular soups because they are simple and delicious. So, I kept this soup vegan by using almond milk. You can also substitute it with coconut milk or coconut cream.
The star of this recipe surprised me. I thought the sweet potatoes would be the center of attention when it came to flavor. However, it is the dried Rosemary that stole the show!
The rosemary packed quite a huge flavor punch to this soup and gave the soup a wonderful aroma. It became one of those soups that just warms you through to the soul.
To give it a little nutty flavor, I added hazelnut to the recipe and green apples gave it a hint of sourness.
The turnips evened out the sweetness from the potatoes which is exactly what the soup needed.
