Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup

Sausage Sweet Potato Soup - Farmgirl Follies

The beginning of our weekend required some comfort food. I made a big pot o’ soup and they ate all of it. No leftovers for lunches today. My recipe was simple: I combined a few handy ingredients with chicken broth. That’s the thing with soups — you can’t go wrong! Experiment with your own combinations or try this simple “recipe” — and have a wonderful weekend!

Sausage and Sweet Potato Soup


  • 1 lb. ground pork sausage
  • 3 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 2 large sweet potatoes yams, diced small
  • 1 cup carrots diced
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons dried)
  • 2 - 32 oz. boxes unsalted chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Brown ground sausage with minced garlic (I used Jimmy Dean Hot ground sausage).
  • In a stock pot, combine sweet potatoes, carrots and parsley with 64 oz. chicken stock. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to simmer, add sausage and garlic to the broth mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Continue to simmer for at least 30 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender.


A cup of frozen peas would make a nice "green" addition to the soup.
