Sweet Potato Sausage Soup

Submitted by: YARN4U

Introduction

This is a very simple recipe, but the soup is delicious! I always use TURKEY kielbasa, which has less fat, but it wasn't on the foods list. Even my college-age son loves this soup! He'll make a big pot of it and eat it for days :-) This is a very simple recipe, but the soup is delicious! I always use TURKEY kielbasa, which has less fat, but it wasn't on the foods list.

Ingredients

    3 - 4 sweet potatoes (the orange ones), peeled and cut into large chunks

    3-4 yams (the lighter yellow ones) peeled and cut into large chunks

    Enough chicken broth to NOT QUITE COVER the sweet potatoes/yams.

    TURKEY kielbasa sausage (Usually found in the deli meat section, this is a horseshoe shaped ring of sausage.) Sliced into 1/2 inch (or so) slices.

    1 cup (or to taste) coarsely chopped pecans ( I usually toast them lightly in the oven, but this step is not absolutely necessary.)

    3 cups ( or to taste) Fat Free Half & Half

Directions

**There aren't really any absolutes with this recipe. So go ahead and use your best guess, and a little more or less of some of the ingredients according to your own personal tastes. **

Peel the yams and sweet potatoes and cut into large chunks. Place in large soup pot. Pour in enough low-fat chicken broth to not quite cover the sweet potatoes/yams. (Broth should be a good inch or two below the veggies.) Cover and simmer until VERY tender and falling apart. Using a potato masher, mash until most of the sweet potatoes/yams are mushed up. You can leave a few unmashed chunks. (Don't be uptight about it, just mash around a bit then call it good. :-) ) Add the kielbasa, the pecans and enough of the half & half to make the soup creamy. Season with a little pepper, if desired. You shouldn't need much salt, if any, because the kielbasa is a little salty. This recipe makes 8 - 10 hearty main dish servings.
