This is easy to make, full of flavor from all the vegetables and is even tastier with the sweet potato salsa on top. It's perfect for lunch or dinner and is filling yet light at the same time.
One of my favorite ways to help out my family, friends, and neighbors when they need an extra hand is to take them dinner. It’s easy for me to do, and super helpful for those that need it.
Plus, I have had neighbors bring me dinner in the past, and it was so nice, especially just after having a baby…so I figure I should give back :).
This is my go-to recipe when I am cooking for others. It tastes fabulous, is super simple to make, it feeds a crowd, is nutritious and made with wholesome ingredients, is great to serve to people with food sensitivities (it’s Vegan, nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and peanut-free), and most importantly everyone LOVES it! I take it to get-togethers all the time and I am actually taking it to a family party later this month.
I strongly suggest/boldly recommend/highly advocate garnishing the soup with my roasted sweet potato salsa. The salsa and the soup were just meant to be together, and it takes the soup from being good to being outrageously delicious!!! Trust me on this one, and do it!

If you’re using dried beans, be sure you have plenty of time. I soaked them for four hours and they still had to cook for two, not one. Another hour might’ve been better. Otherwise, it’s a good taste and makes plenty.
Soak them over night it makes a big difference:)
so good! I made it this afternoon and just had two bowls of it. Didn’t make the roasted sweet potato salsa, but it was tasty with some garden fresh salsa in it. I’ll do your salsa next time because, yes…it does look like they were made for each other.
This is a repeat, for sure.
I am so glad you liked it. It is a favorite around here for sure!!!

Oh my, yum! This looks SO good! And perfect for the 30 degree weather we’ve been having!
Ahhh, I am glad we aren’t at 30 degrees right now (but our time will come, unfortunately), but yes, this soup is perfect for cold weather ?
