Soups are one of my favorite things to make. Soups are easy, delicious and a perfect way to pack vegetables and herbs into your diet. For those who do not drink enough water, soups are rehydrating and nourishing to the soul.
And well, nothing is easier than this sweet potato kale quinoa stew. Chocked full of healthy carbohydrates and protein, this soup takes just under 30 minutes to make.
Just like this soup, I'll make this blog short and sweet. I actually created an original version for my upcoming vegan cookbook, which I will publish later this year. So this is a spin off from my original recipe and well, it's just as good and delicious! Enjoy!
