4 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 pound sausage (chorizo or Italian), sliced
6 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup heavy cream (optional)
Chopped parsley or cilantro, for garnish (optional)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and cook until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the sweet potatoes and sausage, and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add the broth, smoked paprika, cumin, thyme, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft.

  4. Remove from heat and use an immersion blender to blend the soup until it's smooth. Alternatively, you can let the soup cool down and then blend it in batches in a blender.

  5. If using heavy cream, stir it into the soup. If you prefer a thinner consistency, add more broth or water.

  6. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro, if desired.
