Greens, Sweet Potato and Brown Rice Soup

greens-sweet_potato-brown _rice-soupOkay, I’m still not a vegetarian but recent health issues have made me critically rethink my diet. Meat, or most of it, was the first thing to go so I reworked a kale recipe to create a Greens, Sweet Potato and Brown Rice Soup. It’s refreshing and really good for you with leafy greens and deep orange sweet potatoes. I didn’t use any salt and the flavor of the vegetables really comes through. I didn’t use stock either. I’ve found that stock adds depth to soup but most just add salt unless you make them yourself.

DIRECTIONS: Sauté 1 chopped onion and 2 minced cloves garlic in pot with 1 Tbsp oil until softened. Add 3 cups chopped collard greens, 2 diced sweet potatoes, and 1 qt low-sodium broth. Simmer and cook until sweet potatoes are tender and greens are al dente. Stir in 2 cups cooked brown rice. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper and Parmesan.
