Ingredients
Soup Ingredients
  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 3 stalks of celery, sliced into chunks
  • 1 apple, peeled and cut into 4 large pieces
  • 1 onion, cut into 4 large pieces
  • 3 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and left whole
  • 32 ounces + 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3-5 fresh thyme sprigs
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt (might need more after tasting)
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk or ½ cup cream
Other Ingredients
  • 2 pounds Italian sausage, cooked and drained on a paper towel
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish
Instructions
  1. Prepare all the ingredients as noted above - sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, apple, carrots and celery. Don't cut too small otherwise they can overcook.
  2. Once all the ingredients are prepared, place them into a slow cooker, pour chicken stock over them, sprinkle with salt and pepper and place the thyme sprigs on top.
  3. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. I cooked it both ways and I prefer low heat versus high heat but they both work just fine.
  4. Puree the soup in a blender or with an immersion blender and place back into the slow cooker. Stir in coconut milk, taste for seasoning - add more salt and pepper as desired then cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  5. While the soup cooks, prepare the sausage, Simply cook it in a sauté pan breaking it apart with a wooden spoon until cooked through and crispy. Drain on a paper towel.
  6. When you're ready to serve, top soup with crumbled sausage and parmesan cheese.
Notes
If you don't like sausage, bacon is a good sub!
