INGREDIENTS
  • 5 cup sweet potatoes, chopped into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 25 oz chicken stock (preferably organic, low sodium and free range)
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoon tamari (sub low sodium soy sauce)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Optional: 2 tbsp arrowroot starch or cornstarch
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 375 and line a large baking sheet with parchment. Add sweet potatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt to baking sheet. Stir to coat evenly and make sure sweet potatoes do not overlap. Roast for 40 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are easily pierced with a fork and golden brown around the edges.
  2. While potatoes are roasting, make the rest of your soup. Heat a large pot to medium high and add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. When oil is shimmering slightly, add onion and saute until translucent and fragrant, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and saute another minute. Add stock, wine, molasses, tamari, remaining salt, bay leaves and nutmeg. Stir and turn to a simmer (small bubbles around the edge).
  3. Allow soup to simmer for 15 minutes and then add roasted sweet potatoes from the oven. Remove bay leaves. Carefully!!! ladle soup into a large blender or use an immersion blender. Puree until smooth. Add soup back to pot and If you would like to thicken it, add arrowroot starch to a bowl with 3 tablespoons water. Stir and add mixture to soup.
  4. Add fresh greens into your soup to serve or top with crushed walnuts or avocado.
