Sweet Potato Pear Soup Recipe

This sweet potato pear soup recipe is the perfect mix of sweet and savory. It's freezer friendly too so make a double batch!

We have had such amazing feedback on the Sweet Potato & Pear Soup from our January Week 1 menu that we had to share it with you! The pear adds a nice sweetness to the soup when combined with the spice of the ginger and a hint of earthy veg from the onion and sweet potato. Healthy, nutritious & easy to make – add it to your grocery list for next week! Be sure to freeze leftovers or double the recipe for when you need a quick meal.

When I am feeling particularly hungry or want to serve this soup to guests, I like to pair it with Roasted Salt & Pepper Drumsticks (pictured above). These drumsticks are SO SUPER SIMPLE and always impress. Don't share that they are only 3 ingredients: salt, pepper and drumsticks! If you want to try at home, bake your seasoned drumsticks in a single layer on a baking sheet at 425 F for 35-40 mins or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. That's it – promise!
