This is a good soup, but I make it and eat it because it is so healthy and low in calorie. I will be making it again, it's a nice start to a healthy week night dinner. I think it needs a little more spice (although I don't add the cayenne) I use an African Smoke spice that I bought a Trader Joe's and it makes everything smokey and delicious.
Green Soup with Yams & Sage
From EatingWell: September/October 2011
This kale-and-spinach soup has a beautiful complexity. It’s slightly sweet, with a bright note of lemon and the subtle aromatics of thyme, sage and garlic. Japanese yams are marvelously flavorful; they have a dark purplish skin and are snow-white inside. Ask for them at your farmers’ market or grocery, but if they are unavailable, regular sweet potatoes can be substituted. Recipe by Anna Thomas for EatingWell.
8 Reviews for Green Soup with Yams & Sage
This soup is really, really good. I will be making it again. It would be great as a first course for a dinner party or just alongside a sandwich, though it's not hearty enough to be a meal on it's own.
I was a tiny bit apprehensive about making this soup due to the sheer amount of greens. I thought it might be "green overload", but it was delightful. The yams and caramelized onions totally balance out the bitter greens. I did make one slight change due to an ingredient shortage. I only had one sweet potato, so I used one regular old russet potato along with one sweet potato. I'm not sure how much of a difference that made, but either way it tasted great. Will definitely make again!
