We've had a couple snowy days, so yesterday I began my Snow Day Soup. I haven't had much of an appetite, and was craving fresh vegetables.
Here's my recipe for you!
I began with sautéing a diced onion and butter in my glazed cast iron stock pot. Then I added a splash of olive oil, and added a chopped organic sweet potato.
To the whole mix I added Swanson's low sodium chicken broth, parsley, a bay leaf, and a teaspoon of French herbs.
This morning, while watching snow fly past the windowpanes, I pulled out the soup and heated it up. I quickly skimmed off the butter milk fats and discarded them.
Once it was heated through, I used my immersion blender to blend the potatoes and onions into a creamy broth.
I added a leaf of organic kale, and tossed in the cup of softened beans to cook further. I also quick cooked a cup of pasta pearls.
And... It was
A success! My husband and I throughly enjoyed this soup - full of beta carotene, fiber, and greens!
Enjoy- let me know if you've tried it!
