  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ White Onion Chopped
  • 2 medium Carrots Chopped
  • 2 large Sweet Potatoes Peeled and Chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic diced
  • 1 can Coconut Milk 395ml
  • 1 c Vegetable Broth we use the bouillon powder and add water
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika + Chipotle *add more or less for your spice preference
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Ginger
  • 1 tsp Cumin


  • Set the Pressure Cooker to sauté function and add in the onion, carrots and sweet potatoes. Allow to cook for 4 mins, stirring until softened.
  • Add in the garlic and all spices and sauté for another minute.
  • Press Cancel/Stop to turn off the cooker. Add coconut milk (reserving a small amount to garnish if you wish), and broth to the pot along with a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently stir to mix the ingredients.
  • Seal the Pressure Cooker and cook using the Soup Function at medium pressure (depending in your model you may need to use a manual function, check your manual for directions) for 15 minutes.
  • After it has finished, and using an oven mitt, apply a quick pressure release to completely depressurize (until the floating valve drops).
  • Carefully remove the lid and stir the soup to incorporate all ingredients
  • Using an immersion blender or regular blender you want to carefully blend the soup until it is completely smooth.

  • Taste for additional seasonings and adjust to your taste preferences. Top soup with a drizzle of coconut milk and chives or basil for presentation.


Soup will thicken as it sits, if you prefer it to be thinner just add in additional milk/cream right before serving. Ensure you have "warmed" the milk for 10 seconds first so it doesn't curdle.
