On Saturday, Josh went snowboarding with his friend. I wasn’t invited, not that I wanted to go, I hate the snow, cold, and scary, steep mountains:) I have tried skiing twice, but I am not a fan. I prefer to stay inside where it is warm. So I spent the day cooking and baking-that is my idea of a good time. I wanted Josh to come home to something hearty and warm, so I made a black bean sweet potato soup.
We love black bean soup at our house. We have a couple favorite recipes, but I wanted to try something new. I had a large sweet potato lying on the counter and decided to throw it into the mix. It turned out to be the shining star in this soup. It gave the soup great color, texture, taste, and added nutrients.
This soup is very filling, but in a “good for you” way. I made a large batch so we could freeze half of it for later. I am glad I did because I am already wanting more:) Josh loved it too, it was the perfect post snowboarding meal.
