Nothing in this world brings me comfort and feelings of snuggliness like a big, warm, bowl of soup, on a cold night. And one of the greatest things about soup, is the endless possibilities of ingredient combinations. I, especially, like to think outside the bowl, so to speak.
So tonight I took some items I had on hand and made a delicious paleo pot of soup
Beef and Sweet Potato Soup
2T. Coconut oil
Half a red onion sliced
1.5 pounds of ground beef
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
4c fresh kale
Salt and pepper to taste.
Heat oil over med high heat in a large stew pot. Add onion, saute til tender. Add beef, cook thoroughly. Add sweet potatoes.Add garlic, stir just til garlic is very fragrant. Add water. Bring to a rolling boil, cover and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 30 min, stirring frequently.
This soup was hearty, satisfying, and I have plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow….and my kids loved it! Next time I might try getting creative with some spices.
I would love to hear what your favorite paleo soup recipes are! Leave me some comments!!
