It’s a deeply nourishing elixir that I could feel coursing through my body into my bones making me feel instantly warmer and healthier. It lifted my spirits and rejuvenated me when I didn’t realize I felt bad to begin with! I can’t help but love a soup like that. I’m convinced it has magical properties. Magical, healing properties.
Try this if you’re feeling under the weather or just need a little pick-me-up. It works wonders for the body, mind and soul!
1. In a soup pot or large saucepan heat the olive oil and saute onion, garlic and celery over medium-low heat until tender. Add sweet potato and salt; saute 3-4 more minutes.
2. Add seasonings, tomato, broth, chickpeas and kale. Bring to a boil and simmer slowly for 25 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender. Taste halfway through and adjust seasonings if needed. Remove bay leaf before serving. Serve immediately with crusty bread.
