The Place for the Healthy Foodie and Hurried Chef
Prepare yourself for the most delicious winter soup of all time. OF ALL TIME.
I found this recipe on the SkinnyTaste website (link here) and said “hmm, sounds weird.” A few weeks later (aka, yesterday) I looked at it and said “ok, why not?”
Then I went to the grocery store:
No sweet potatoes
Determined to make this work, I bought arugula to substitute for kale (spinach would have worked too) and then I went home, hoping that the sweet potato I bought was ok.
It was a squishy mess, the stuff of nightmares for a budding chef. I almost screamed, and threw it away.
Then I looked for quinoa and I didn’t have any.
Oh. my. gosh.
Desperate, I texted one of my friends. No dice.
Nearing hysteria, I called my husband, and he saved my sorry hide by going to Walmart. I love you sweety!
So yesterday I brewed up this soup and my oh my, it surpassed by expectations by far. I must tell you, I didn’t think that it would be so good, and it was. In five words it is: hearty, healthy, filling, just-hot-enough, and good for you. I know I cheated and used false hyphens and too many words, but I don’t care because thats how much I love this soup.
But enough of the drama and praise, below you will find the recipe from Skinnytaste.com! Ready, set, go!
