Navy Bean & Sweet Potato Soup

Using a rich flavor palette of vegetables, this simple, smooth bean soup tastes incredible.

Tip: If you don’t have an immersion blender, blend in a regular blender in small batches, leaving the top cap off the cover and making sure not to fill the blender more than halfway. You can cover the top vent with a clean kitchen towel to reduce splatter.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dry navy beans
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1 large potato, scrubbed and diced
  • 1 large yam, peeled and diced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ¼ tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

Directions

  1. Rinse beans and soak in cold water overnight (6-8 hours).
  2. Pour off soaking water, rinse beans, and place in a pot with 6 cups water. Add onion, garlic, carrot, celery, potato, yam, bay leaves, thyme, and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, loosely covered, until beans are tender (1-2 hours).
  3. Remove bay leaves and add remaining ingredients. Using an immersion blender, purée until smooth. Add extra water as needed to reach desired texture.
