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!
