Super Low Cal Sweet Potato Soup

If you're like me, you want something sweet, warm and filling in your belly when it's cold outside. You probably are also fighting a constant battle between heavy, calorie laden "seasonal food", "party food", "edible gifts" and all those other gooey things conspiring to make you feel like a stuffed turkey - just when you are also enlisted in a string of events that has you slipping into one party dress and velvet cocktail number after another. So, I came up with this recipe for the times when I want something with all the seasonal, belly warming, comfort of the season but also want to fit into my clothes come January.

In addition to being hella easy (a pre-req for my recipes) it also keeps for about a week in the fridge stored in an adorable mason jar, so I make a big pot and feast on it all week long.







Ingredients:
3 sweet potatoes
1/2 white onion
Pam spray
1 carton chicken or vegetable broth

nonfat yogurt (optional garnish)
chopped green onion (optional garnish)
