Beet & Sweet Potato Soup

Last week, I tried to recreate a soup that my sister made for our family on Christmas Eve. It was utterly delicious and combined three excellent things into one soup: beets, sweet potatoes, and kale. The result was a hearty, filling soup.


Beet & Sweet Potato Soup

1/2 yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 beets, cubed
1 1/2 sweet potatoes, cubed
Small red potatoes (as many as you'd like), quartered
Olive Oil
4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1/2 cup vinegar (I used both white and cider vinegar)
1/2 bunch of kale
Bay leaf
Salt & pepper to taste

Low-fat sour cream for garnish

  • Cook the onion and garlic in olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat, until onion is softened.
  • Add sweet potatoes, beets, and potatoes and cook for a few minutes. 
  • Add chicken/vegetable stock, vinegar, and bay leaf and simmer 30 minutes. Taste broth and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add kale and cook for 3-5 minutes, until kale is slightly wilted.
  • Serve soup garnished with sour cream.
