Preheat Oven to 450F or 230C.

Toss the coarsely chopped onion with the olive oil. Spread the onions evenly onto a baking sheet. Roast until the onions begin to char on the edges (check at 15-20 minutes).

While the onions are roasting, cook the sweet potatoes, and carrots on your stovetop with the water. Depending on the size of the pot used, you may need to increase the amount of water. The goal is to steam the vegetables, not boil them.

Once the vegetables are easily crushed with a fork, remove the pot from the stove (15-20 minutes).

When the onions are roasted, using a blender combine them with the Buttermilk or Sour Cream.

Working in batches, or with an immersion blender combine the Buttermilk mixture with the steamed vegetables. Next add the cream, and seasonings (cinnamon, garlic powder, thyme, and allspice). You may once again find that you need to add move water at this step. Season to taste with salt, and return the pot to the stove. Once the soup is back to a gentle simmer it’s ready to serve.


If available in your area, look for “up-cycled” or “imperfect” vegetables for this recipe – they taste great and are a great way to support the local farming industry.
