Magic Feel Better Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 sweet potato, cut into pieces

  • 1/2 cup of chopped carrots

  • 2-4 cloves of garlic 1 bay leaf

  • 2 cups of chicken (or vegetable) broth

  • 3/4 cup chopped onion

  • 3 cups of fresh swiss chard or spinach, washed and chopped. 

  • A handful of fresh herbs: basil, thyme & parsley

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

Directions:

1) Put the sweet potato, carrots, garlic, bay leaf, onion and broth into a saucepan and bring to a boil.

2) Reduce heat to simmer (medium low) and cook for about 20 – 30 minutes or until the potato is fall-apart tender and the other veggies are soft.

3) Fish out the bay leaf and stir in the chard and other veggies.  Cover the pot and cook for just a couple minutes or until the chard is cooked. Add the herbs.

4) Pour the soup into a blender (or use an immersion blender), add the yogurt and blend until smooth. Add more broth if you want a thinner soup. I like my soup pretty thick.

5) Serve hot, topped with Sriracha and a a dollop of yogurt.  Garnish with avocado slices and fresh parsley and chives.
