A beautiful fall soup that features sweet potatoes paired with coriander and cinnamon for a warm, comforting soup.  




  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup short grain brown rice
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 to 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or nut cream


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup raw buckwheat
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup, warmed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, warmed
  • Pinch of sea salt


  • In a pot combine the ingredients for the soup, through 3 cups of the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the rice and sweet potatoes are tender. Pour the soup into a blender and puree until smooth; adding more broth as needed. Transfer the soup back to the pot. Bring back to a warm temperature and stir in the lemon juice followed by the heavy cream.
  • While soup is cooking, heat oven to 325˚F. Combine the oats, buckwheat, and pepitas in a bowl. Warm the coconut oil, brown rice syrup, and salt together in a small pot or bowl. Pour over the oats and stir until the granola is well-coated. Spread into a thin layer on a sheet tray. Bake, stirring once or twice, until the granola has browned and is crisp. Remove from oven, let cool, and break into pieces.
  • Divide the soup into two bowls and top with granola before serving.
