Kumara Ginger Soup

Kumara Ginger Soup

As the weather cools down in New Zealand, nothing beats a warm and comforting bowl of soup. And what better soup to enjoy than kumara ginger soup, a delicious Chinese dessert that is easy to make and good for you. This is a traditional Chinese dessert soup that is warm, comforting, and easy to make. It only requires four ingredients: sweet potato, ginger, water, and brown sugar. 

Kumara, also known as sweet potato, is a versatile and nutritious vegetable that is rich in fibre, vitamin A, vitamin C, and antioxidants. It has a natural sweetness that pairs well with the spicy and aromatic ginger, which is known for its anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits.

At Huckleberry, we are proud to offer you the best organic kumara and ginger, as well as other ingredients you need to make this soup at home. Our kumara and ginger are grown locally and organically in Dargaville, without any harmful pesticides or chemicals. They are fresh, flavourful, and full of goodness.


  • 4 medium organic kumara, peeled and chopped in chunks
  • 1/4 cup organic ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup organic brown sugar


In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the sweet potato, ginger, and brown sugar. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the sweet potato is soft.

You can either serve the soup as it is, or blend it for a smoother texture. You can also adjust the sweetness and spiciness to your liking by adding more sugar or ginger.

Enjoy this sweet potato and ginger dessert soup as a dessert or a snack. It is a great way to warm up and nourish your body. It is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free, and suitable for everyone.

It is also a great way to use up any leftover kumara you may have. We hope you love this recipe as much as we do. Stay healthy and happy this autumn!
