Sweet potatoes, spinach, and edamame (fresh soybeans) make a tasty combination in this soup.

Serves 4

Prep time:10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes


1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 cups vegetable broth
1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2" cubes
1 cup frozen shelled edamame beans
2 ounces baby spinach (2 cups)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Do not brown.

Add broth, increase heat to high, and bring to boil. Add sweet potato and edamame, reduce to a simmer, and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in spinach and heat until wilted.

Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
