Sweet Potato Minestrone

In Suzi's Words

I absolutely LOVE this soup! It’s comforting, easy to make, healthy, and low cal! What more could you ask for in a one pot meal? You will be glad to have this in your chef’s bag of tricks after a long day of Christmas shopping when you are running on low energy and you need to get dinner on the table in a jiff. Enjoy!

2 t. Olive oil

1 medium Onion, diced

1 Celery stalk, diced

1 medium Carrot, diced

2 c. Water

1 (14 oz.) can Italian tomatoes, diced

1 (14 oz.) can reduced-sodium Chicken broth

2 Sweet potatoes (aka garnet yams), peeled and diced

1 c. canned small White beans

¼ t. salt

Pinch of pepper

2 c. fresh Spinach leaves, torn and lightly packed

Heat soup pot over medium high heat.  Swirl in the oil; then stir in onion, celery, and carrot.  Cover and cook until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add water, tomatoes, broth, sweet potatoes, beans and salt & pepper;  cover and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes.

Add spinach; cover and cook just until spinach wilts, about 45 seconds.  Serve immediately.
