Sweet Potato Soup in the soup maker. A creamy sweet potato soup. Loaded with flavour and body, soup maker sweet potato soup, will be on your wish list time and time again.
Long before I made soup maker sweet potato soup, I dreamed about owning a soup maker, so that I could make soup fast that would feed the family for supper without much effort.
I used to drool over the soup maker display model that was for sale in my local electronics store. It was very similar to this Cuisinart model and very expensive too. If memory serves me correctly, we paid about 150€ for one when we eventually bought it. They was only that model here in Portugal and the Morphy Richards in the UK and it was the new thing.
I was about 6 months pregnant with my beautiful Sofia at the time. I imagined using it for baby weaning, eating soup to lose weight and my favourite homemade tomato sauce that I now make regularly in the soup maker.
I went and bought it a month before Sofia was born and since then I have lost count of the amount of times soup maker soups have been on the supper menu, here at the Milners.
Instead of it being a fantasy I can now eat sweet potato soup in the soup maker whenever I like. If you are wondering whether the soup maker is for you or not, or if you’re ready to make the purchase then I recommend you read our Cusinart vs Morphy Richards comparison for ideas.
Sweet Potato Soup
I love sweet potato soup and most things that involve sweet potatoes, but as Dominic points out, there are not always that economical. When you think that in season you pay 30 cent a kilo for white potatoes, paying 99 cent a kilo for sweet potatoes can get expensive.
Therefore, I have this rule that I only buy sweet potatoes for my sweet potato soup, when they are reduced to 99 cent a kilo and are of a good size. Those tiny little ones that you peel and then have nothing left are useless.
But to my delight, I went grocery shopping just before Christmas and found the biggest sweet potatoes I had ever seen, and they were just perfect for sweet potato soup!
Sweet Potato Soup Dump Meal
I love sweet potato soup in the soup maker as it is another classic dump and go lunch or supper.
You peel the sweet potatoes and dice them. You add them to the soup maker along with your seasoning and water.
That is it!
Then it is all down to the soup maker to cook your sweet potato soup and you can relax!

Sweet Potato Soup in the soup maker
- Place into the soup maker your peeled and diced sweet potatoes.
- Add your seasoning and 300ml of water.
- Place the lid on the soup maker and cook for 28 minutes on the chunky soup setting.
- Once it beeps remove the lid, add the milk along with 200ml of water and blend.
Because sweet potatoes can vary in weight I recommend you weigh them out peeled and diced to 800g as you can then make sure you don’t do too many or not enough.
You can replace milk with a dairy free alternative like coconut milk, but if you do use the light variety, otherwise it will be super thick. You need the extra water before blending because sweet potato is very thick, and it will go like glue otherwise.
