Hearty Black Bean & Sweet Potato Soup

Hearty Black Bean & Sweet Potato Soup

Welcome to another edition of CLEAN OUT YOUR FRIDGE, SOUP!

I threw together this Mexican Inspired Vegetable Soup at the beginning of the week and am quite fond of the results!  There's over 6 different kinds of vegetables up in there!  I have a bunch of leftovers in the freezer and am currently devouring a bowl for lunch.  I roasted a corn tortilla over an open flame on my stove and crumbled bits of it into the soup! It's absolutely scrumptious with avocado chunks and hot sauce on top!


I should note that this recipe is vegan! I know I have some vegan readers out there, so this one's for you!  My husband who is definitely not vegan really enjoyed it. I got an instant message from him at work yesterday that said:

"Really good soup, honey."

Hooray! I'm happy that he got his daily requirement of vegetables at lunch. This pleases me.

A huge dose of fiber and an insane amount of hearty vegetables in one bowl?
