Sweet Potato and Rice Soup



This soup recipe is pretty basic and the reason why is because one night is was born out of necessity. It was one of those nights when I didn't have much to fix for dinner and was trying to come up with something and this is what the result was. Turns out, I loved the recipe so much I actually make it on purpose now. 💙

I will give you a heads up that this recipe will serve a crowd. If you have leftovers, you will need to add some more broth to the pot the next day because the rice will absorb all of the liquid.


Sweet Potato and Rice Soup

4 c. uncooked rice
(5) 32 oz. cartons of chicken broth (or make your own bone broth!)
3 large onions, chopped
8-10 small/medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into bite size pieces
2 sticks butter
2 whole bunches of celery chopped (not 2 individual stalks)
1/3 c. Nutritional Yeast (optional)
Salt/Pepper to taste


Add all of the ingredients to the pot except for the rice. Bring to a boil. Add rice and reduce heat to low. Keep the lid on your pot and cook for 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Dairy Free Creamy Potato and Cauliflower Soup



I don't remember where I found the original recipe for this soup, but regardless, the original was way too complicated for this girl who likes to keep things simple in the kitchen. So, as usual, I tweeked it and now I'm much happier with this version. And, even the kids love it. In fact, I served it for lunch today and had everyone asking for seconds. You know it's a good day when your kids want more cauliflower. 😊

It's funny because I've been hearing them ask for seconds more and more lately when it comes to vegetables. Even raw ones. Must be the Juice Plus+ they get ever day because, guess what? I've noticed that my taste buds have changed too and I will even eat raw bell peppers on my salad now. Gasp!  

Regardless, we're lovin' this soup. It's perfect for a cold, rainy day like today. In February. In the North. Say what??

Anyways, here's the skinny on this creamy, dairy-free bowl of yum.

Creamy Potato Cauliflower Soup


3-4 medium potatoes, chopped into a mouth friendly size 😏
1 head of cauliflower, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
4 c. almond milk
2 c. water
1 1/4 t. sea salt (we love Redmond's)
1/2 t. dry mustard
1 t. dried parsley
5 T Bragg's Nutritional Yeast


Directions:

Add the chopped onions, cauliflower, garlic cloves, salt, dry mustard, parsley, nutritional yeast, almond milk and water to a large soup pot. Cook over low heat for about 45 minutes or until your potatoes are soft.

I double this batch for my large crew and if we have some leftover it's great reheated the next day. Enjoy!
