I love soup. Especially on a cold day. Today it's been cold and there's even a little snow on the ground. I'm hoping we get more snow this weekend. Here is one of our favorite soups. It's one of those wonderful meals that everyone eats, and no one complains. Sigh =)
Maple Sausage & Sweet Potato Soup
Saute in oil for about 15 minutes:
1 onion, chopped
about 2 cups chopped carrots
1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, minced
5 chopped Applegate Farms, Chicken & Maple, Breakfast Sausage*
Saute a few minutes longer.
5 washed sweet potatoes, cut into about 1" cubes (I used white sweet potatoes today)
about 6 cups of chicken broth
Bring to simmer.
Turn heat to lowest setting, cover and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the potatoes are tender.
Blend slightly with Stick Blender before serving.
*I like Applegate Farms, Chicken & Maple, Breakfast Sausage because it's gluten and casein free and it doesn't contain MSG or nitrates. Plus the chickens are treated humanely and without antibiotics.
PS I bought Agar Powder, and made a pumpkin pie that is completely vegan! It's setting up now, and I'll post it ASAP =)
