Ramadan is a time for reflection and spiritual growth. It’s also a time for delicious food! This Mushroom Soup with Sweet Potato is the perfect dish to break your fast. It’s easy to make, hearty, and flavorful. Plus, it’s packed with nutrients to help you refuel after a long day. Give this soup a try during Ramadan or any time of year!

Health Benefits of Mushroom Soup During Ramadan.

Soups have many health benefits. Some of them are quite specific to Ramadan!

Soups, especially ones like this with mushrooms and sweet potato, are nutrient-dense. They are also inexpensive. Since this mushroom soup has no meat, you can do this for under a few dollars.

Probably most importantly, soups keep you hydrated. Drinking water is essential after a long day of fasting. But, I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get sick of drinking a ton of water all at once. Having soup is an excellent alternative to getting rehydrated.

Mushroom Soup Recipe

You Need an Immersion Blender for this Mushroom Soup

After you cook all of the veggies in this soup, you need an immersion blender. You’ve seen me use one before. I think everyone benefits from having an immersion blender in their kitchen. I have one in my store; you can buy it here.

The blender allows you to pulverize those mushrooms into a rich, creamy soup. Even if your kids don’t like mushrooms, they won’t know any better after you blend them. 🙂

The Recipe

Our mushroom soup recipe is below. It is simple, print-able, and great for Ramadan.
