It is easy to understand why this dairy-free, vegetarian Smoky Pear Sweet Potato Soup is our new favorite recipe with it’s bold flavors and seasonal garnishes. –Jump to Recipe
Roasting fruits and vegetables is an excellent way to enhance their natural flavors and bring new dimension to a dish. Sweet potatoes have a natural sweetness that pairs beautifully with the slight spicy Bosc pears in this Smoky Pear Sweet Potato Soup recipe. You can peel and chop the potatoes then roast them. Or take the slightly lazier way like me and bake them, then scoop out the flesh. I used vegetable broth to thin the soup out and also keep it vegetarian since we have been eating more meatless meals.
Smoky spices like ancho chile powder and Hungarian paprika balance this soup so that it isn’t overly sweet. The combination of flavors is delicate, yet bold! I love how this recipe is elegant enough for a dinner party, yet simple enough for a cozy Sunday afternoon!

Toppings are just as important for visuals as they are for taste. To keep this Smoky Pear Sweet Potato Soup recipe dairy-free I used a light dollop of coconut cream. The richness does well with the fresh, bright Spinach Cranberry Pesto. While the toasted pepitas add a necessary texture element.
