Wednesday-White Bean Sweet Potato Soup
I used the Vegan Slow Cooker cookbook this evening. I have been neglecting my slow cooker lately. It is so nice to have dinner ready when I get home from work, yet my slow cooker is under-utilized. One of my favorite slow cooker cookbooks is Vegan Slow Cooker by Kathy Hester. It is full of a variety of recipes from soups to desserts. Her website has great recipes too and is definitely worth the visit.
The White Bean Sweet Potato Soup is very good. I used kale instead of swiss chard because that is what I had on hand. The hubby suggested spinach next time since he is not a huge kale fan. I think this soup would be good with any choice of greens that you like. I do not like swiss chard, but I am trying to enjoy it. I read something and I do not recall where I read it, but if you try something ten times you will start to like it. So I am trying to like brussel sprouts and swiss chard.
This soup is nice because there are not a lot of ingredients so even if you wait until the morning to prepare it for your slow cooker, it only takes about 15 minutes. But definitely if you have the time and the space, preparing the night before is the best.
