Vegetable Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Rosemary

Ok, please don’t hate me because I made this fabulous vegetable soup, but I forgot to take pictures. I only have one photo and it is not great. I meant to take pictures later, after it cooled down…but I spaced it…and when I remembered it was too late…we devoured this soup!!

So I will just have to tell you how good it is:) It is full of veggies and all things good for you! If you feel a cold coming on, make a big pot of this soup! I am sure everything inside will cure you in no time and if it doesn’t, at least you will have something tasty to eat!!

There is nothing fancy about this soup…I just chopped up a bunch of vegetables and threw them in a pot with broth, canelli beans, seasonings, etc. The sweet potatoes are the star ingredient in this one! I try to add them to everything this time of year and they were perfect in this soup! The fresh rosemary also shined…it really punched up the flavor! So get chopping and make this soup!!

  1. The picture is definitely good enough to show off how tasty it must be! And it looks like it would cure anything that ailed ya. Love the new header pic too!!!!!

  2. Love your new header — great picture! And this soup sounds wonderful! I think I have everything on hand except for the zucchini — I might make this tonight. We’ve had a couple of cold days in a row here (yes, I’m getting whipped by this frigid Alabama winter. How did I ever grow up in the Northeast?)

  3. It looks lovely. I love a veggie soup but have never thought to add sweet potatoes – what a great idea.

    Love the new header photo.

  4. Even with only one picture, your soup looks delicious. I forget to take pictures a lot, I hate when that happens.

  5. I actually cooked a few times last week where I didn’t end up taking pictures (not even 1!) and I’m kicking myself now. But even with this one photo, it’s making me want to make this!

  6. This sounds delicious, and it is vegan too so me and my family can enjoy it without having to make any modifications! Thanks!
