Add all ingredients to a slow cooker and cook for 3-4 hours on LOW or approximately 2 hours on HIGH. If you’re making this stovetop, simply add the ingredients and cook until the sweet potato is fork tender.
Once it’s cooked, removed about 3/4 of the soup and puree until smooth and then mix it back in. Alternatively, you can place an immersion blender right in the slow cooker and puree it that way!
Add any additional salt and pepper to taste and serve!
