Sweet potatoes are loaded with fiber, dietary antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6, manganese, magnesium, and copper and the greatest sweet potato nutritional glory of all is its rich supply of vitamin A.

Sweet Potato, Kale and Beef Soup
· 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
· 1 cup finely chopped onion
· 1 garlic clove, minced
· 2 large sweet potatoes, or several small ones, peeled and diced
· 1 large white potato, diced
· 6 cups water or stock
· 3 cups kale, washed, dried, and chopped into 1-inch pieces
· 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef or turkey (hormone-free, organic)
· 2 teaspoons ground coriander
· 1 teaspoon ground cumin, salt, and pepper
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add the onion, garlic, a touch of salt and cook for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is soft and a bit browned.
Add the sweet potatoes, white potatoes, and water. Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat, partially cover the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes have softened. Using a potato masher, mash some of the potatoes in the pot to thicken the soup.
Add the kale and continue cooking for another 10 minutes until the kale is tender.
In a small sauté pan add the beef, coriander, and cumin and brown until the beef is fully cooked through. Add a touch of salt.
Add the meat to the soup and simmer, partially covered, for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
