Garam Masala Sweet Potato Soup
2 cups diced yellow onion
1 1/2 cups diced celery
12 cups peeled and cubed sweet potatoes (about 8 medium potatoes)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 1/2 garam masala
4 cups vegetable broth
3 cups water
Turn you Instant Pot on to saute. Add olive oil, onion, and celery. Stir and let cook until onions are translucent. (about 4-5 minutes) Add the remaining ingredients to your instant pot. Stir. Place the lid on the pot, turn the valve to seal, and cook on manual – high pressure for 15 minutes. Allow to natural release. (This will take about 15-20 minutes) Once pressure is released, carefully remove the lid of the pot and use a hand blender to blend soup until it is smooth. Serve.
Note: If you do not have a hand blender, you can use a regular blender, but allow the soup to cool a bit before blending.
Note: If freezing, allow to the soup to cool before sealing your freezer containers or bags.
