This hearty Sweet Potato Vegetable Soup is a wonderful way to get in your vegetables and making you feel good about what you’re putting into your body. Extremely easy to prepare and I offer a stovetop and crockpot version - both effortless even for the novice cook.
If you’re looking for an easy soup for lunch or a light dinner, then this sweet potato vegetable soup is a good choice. This is probably one of the easiest soups you'll ever prepare. You basically chop the vegetables and add all the ingredients in the pot and simmer. There’s no sautéing involved. This is super simple.
You’ll need an onion, potatoes - russet and sweet, some carrots, celery, squash, and garlic. Those all need to be chopped and placed either in a crockpot at least 6 quarts in size, OR you can place it in a large stockpot.
Add some spices, stock - your choice of vegetable or chicken, water, olive oil, and red wine vinegar.
Give it a stir. Cook for 4 - 8 hours in a crockpot depending on what heat setting you choose, or just under an hour on the stovetop.
The soup is thickened by adding a few ladles into a blender and blending until it's smooth. Stir it back into the soup and now you have a thick base along with some chunks to make it interesting. Just remember to remove the bay leaves before you blend!
Stir in some fresh chopped parsley and either fresh or frozen chopped kale or spinach. I use frozen because it's easier. If using fresh, grab 2 handfuls and chop it up. Stir into the soup and let it cook for a few minutes to heat through.
Now if you are on a Whole30 diet, eat as is. If you aren’t, serve sprinkled with some Parmesan or Romano cheese for added flavor and a slice of good crusty bread and you have yourself an incredible hearty meal. Did I mention it’s good for you?
