This super-healthy, hypoallergenic soup is brimming with nutrients that can give a real boost to your immune system. Orange-fleshed sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin C, beta-carotene and other antioxidant compounds, while thyme, onions and ginger lend their anti-bacterial, mucus-clearing and anti-inflammatory properties to this savoury soup.

Sweet Potato Soup With Thyme


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 3 large sweet potatoes (pink, orange, or yellow variety), peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • Fresh thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until golden.
  • Pour in the broth and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and ginger, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a fork (about 20 to 25 minutes).
  • Working in batches, purée soup in a blender or use an immersible hand blender to blend soup until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with fresh thyme and serve hot.

Very cool demo on how labour happens ...

I have five kids, three of whom I birthed from my own body, so I thought I pretty much knew how childbirth happens. OMG WAS I EVER WRONG. This is the coolest demo I've ever seen explaining how labor works—I just wish I'd seen it *before* my babies were born!
