A traditional bisque is a fat-laden concoction made with heavy cream and/or a roux. This Naked bisque is just as rich and creamy, but completely fat-free and healthful.

Sweet Potato Bisque

Yield: 4 servings

Sweet Potato Bisque


3 large organic sweet potatoes, peeled
1 medium-sized onion, peeled and diced
6 cups low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
1 Tbsp. fresh thyme (or 1 tsp. dried)
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. ground Ceylon cinnamon
1 tsp. organic, non-GMO light miso
Ground black pepper to taste
1½ cups unsweetened organic almond milk


In a large pot, cook the potatoes for 35 minutes in 4 cups of water.

Place the onion in a large saucepan and sauté over medium heat for 8 minutes. Add ¼ cup of the vegetable broth to keep the onion from sticking to the pan.

Add the garlic, ginger, thyme, nutmeg, and cinnamon and cook for 1 minute.

Add the sweet potatoes, the remaining vegetable broth, and miso. Bring to a boil over high heat.

Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the almond milk. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, and season with a bit of pepper. Serve topped with a sprinkle of fresh thyme.
