Gut Repair Sweet Potato Soup

Time: 75 min 

Servings: 4





  • Pull the bag of butternut squash from the freezer, and allow it to defrost overnight in your fridge.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 375 F.
  • Scrub and poke the sweet potatoes with a fork multiple times. Place the cubes on a baking sheet.
  • Roast the sweet potatoes for about 35 to 45 minutes (or until soft and fragrant).
  • Remove from oven and allow them to cool.
  • In a pan, heat Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil over medium heat. Add the leeks and turn the heat down to medium-low heat. Sauté for about ten minutes, stirring the leeks every couple of minutes so they don't burn. After about eight minutes, add the garlic to the pan and keep the contents moving so the garlic doesn't burn.
  • In a high-speed blender, add the leak-garlic mixture, butternut squash, and two sweet potatoes (with the skins removed). Add the room temperature broth, sea salt, and white pepper. Blend on high until mixture is smooth.
  • Add the remaining two skinless sweet potatoes and the Primal Kitchen Grass-fed Collagen Peptides and blend again. If the mixture is too thick, add more broth (1/4 cup at a time) until you get to the consistency you want. If you do not have extra broth, just add water.
  • Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  • Optional: Add 1/4 cup browned ground dark turkey or beef. 
  • Enjoy!

This isn't your ordinary baked potato. Our souped-up spud provides a far more nourishing meal for active adults and kids. It’s as craveable as the cheesy, bacon-topped tater skins you can find at pub happy hours and chain restaurants, but, arguably, much more delicious. It’s layer upon layer upon layer of flavor.
