  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 large garnet yams, peeled and cubed
  • 3 cans white beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 6 cups veggie broth or 3 bullion cubes with 6 cups water
  • 2 cups lacinto (dino) kale, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs nutritional yeast

In a soup pot over medium heat, sauté onion, garlic and celery in oil until soft. Add sage and thyme and stir to combine. Add yams, white beans & broth. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cover pot and simmer until yams are soft, about 20-30 minutes. Add kale and cover to let it wilt. Stir in nutritional yeast and add sea salt to taste.
