Slow Cooker Smoky Sweet Potato Soup

Smoky Sweet Potato Soup.  Fall is my favorite time of year and sweet potatoes are one of my favorite veggies.  So of course I had to make this healthy slow cooker soup recipe for you.

 

Smoky Sweet Potato Soup

 

You can make this healthy soup in the slow cooker when you are not even home!  Plus, you will not heat up the kitchen.  If you prefer to make this on the stove, that is an option too.  Just bring to a boil and then cover, turn down and simmer until everything is soft.  Then just blast it with the immersion blender.

I love this dinner idea because any veggies will work.  So you can use up leftovers in the fridge.  I served mine over cooked quinoa, but you can eat it plain too.  Serving over brown rice is another option if you want to stretch the meal out more.

If you like a little more heat, you can add a jalapeno at the same time you add the bell peppers.

Easy Broccoli Stir Fry

If you are looking a quick meal idea, this Easy Broccoli Stir Fry is it.  I was inspired to make this recipe by my Thai Peanut Sauce recipe.  I thought it would go really well with the broccoli since I sometimes put broccoli in my Peanut Noodle Stir Fry recipe.

I slightly tweaked the peanut sauce for this recipe.  It came out pretty yummy!
