Sausage Sweet Potato Chard Soup

There is nothing better than a big bowl of soup on a cold day! Actually, I could eat a big bowl of soup any day, regardless of the weather! I’m just a soup kind of girl… and luckily for me, Erik is a soup kind of guy!

Sausage Sweet Potato Chard Soup

I have my go-to soups that are constantly in rotation in our house, but sometimes I like to mix it up! Literally one day I was craving soup and decided to look in my kitchen and see what we had and threw it all together! And it was a huge hit! 

Sausage Sweet Potato Chard Soup

This is a soup that can be easily modified to work with whatever you have in your kitchen! If you don’t have sweet potato, feel free to use white potato (you could even use rice- but that would mean it’s not grain free, if that matters to you!). If you don’t have swiss chard, you should throw in kale or spinach!

Play around with it and enjoy!
