Maple Sausage & Sweet Potato Soup

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
Add:
1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, minced
5 chopped Applegate Farms, Chicken & Maple, Breakfast Sausage*
Saute a few minutes longer.
Add:
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 =)

    Hi Kelly! Just wanted to let you know I tried this soup last night and it was nothing short of amazing! A few changes I made: I halved the recipe and used Trader Joe’s Maple & Apple Chicken Sausage (which worked great!) and then I vitamixed half of the soup so there would still be some good chunks. Also, I only simmered it for about 1/2 hour for others that are looking for a quick option. Thanks so much for another amazing recipe! Happy Thanksgiving!
