Spicy Sweet Potato Soup with Chipotle {Gwyneth Paltrow}


Dang Gwyneth girl, you make a good soup!

Described as ‘the perfect soup’ by Ms Paltrow herself, this spicy creamy mouth explosion is likely to be your new fall go-to. Flipping through ‘Its All Good’ cookbook, I was immediately pulled in by my favourite word (chipotle) in one of her ‘Vegan and Elimination Diet friendly’ soup recipes. A lil smoky sweet goes a looong way in my bowl. 

If you haven’t had the chance to check out ‘Its All Good’, take a gander at your Chapters. its PACKED with simple & delicious recipes for the feel-good eater or experimental vegan. Lots of gluten free and vegetarian too!
