I just found out that January was National Soup Month… makes sense though since Jan is pretty much the coldest month of the year (I’m praying the coldness stops soon). So anyways… in honor of National Soup Month I’m reposting my favorite soup recipe from my old website/blog. New followers this is an awesome delicious soup-er (ha, get it?!) easy recipe. As always don’t forget to season as you wish! I make a batch and then usually freeze a couple servings for later that month or next month.
Ingredients: 2 medium or 1 large sweet potato, 1 cup carrots, 1 yellow onion, 1 can black beans, 4-5 cups chicken/vegetable broth (should be enough to cover all the veggies once they are in the crockpot) and seasonings : ginger (I recommend fresh ginger grated or chopped), basil, garlic powder, etc.
1) Chop up veggies (don’t forget to peel sweet potato).
2) Add chicken broth (or vegetable broth to make dish vegan), veggies, and black beans to crockpot.
3) Seasoning, I chopped up half a root of fresh ginger, added 1-2 TBSP garlic powder and dry basil. Feel free to use thyme, parsley, whatever you like!
4) Mix everything in and cook for about 8 hours.
Seriously easy meal full of great nutrients and plant based protein! Enjoy! Do you have any favorite soup recipes?? My favorite soup recipe ever is probably my mom’s Italian Wedding Soup… I’ve actually never made it myself… I just enjoy eating it when she makes it!
