Lemony Sweet Potato and Chickpea Soup

It is still a soup week over here. The girls already have had two snow days in a row! Soup is so easy and quick to make, making it perfect when your are busy at home.   You can really add whatever veggies you have on hand to this soup because it is so versatile.  I add in hot sauce for my husband and I after.

MAKES 4 DINNER-SIZE BOWLS OR 6 APPETIZER-SIZED PORTIONS


INGREDIENTS
– 1 can of coconut milk, regular or reduced-fat
– 5 cups vegetable stock
– 1 russet potato, finely chopped
– 1 carrot, finely chopped
– 1/2-1 sweet potato, depending on size
– 1 can of chickpeas, drained
– juice of 1 lime or 1.5 tablespoons lime/lemon juice
– salt and pepper, to taste
– 1 tablespoon herbs of your choice (1 used some frozen basil I had made into ice cubes)


DIRECTIONS
1. Peel and chop your vegetables
2. Put all of the ingredients into a large pot
3. 0n medium-heat, cook until soup is reduced by about 25% and vegetables are tender. The longer you let it cook, the thicker it will become, so cook to your desired consistency. I like mine more of a stew.
4. Adjust seasoning to taste and serve with additional lime.

I'm a plant-based distance runner and mother of two young girls. I enjoy making healthy recipes and experimenting with food. I also love to garden, so you will see many seasonal recipes that use what is currently growing in my backyard. I have a HBSc. in Nutrition and a Doctorate in Education and this background provides me with the skills necessary to pursue my passion - educating others on healthy eating. I don't count calories, so you won't find any nutritional information in my recipes. However, I strive to make each recipe healthy enough to fuel you and your family through the day.
