Greek Yogurt is the unsung hero of non-meat-based protein. It is protein-rich, helps build muscle and bones, and leaves you feeling fuller longer. This Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup includes Greek yogurt, which provides the creaminess to this hearty soup.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1½ teaspoons minced chipotles in adobo
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 pounds sweet potatoes (about four medium), peeled and chopped
1-quart low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups water
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
¾ cup nonfat Greek yogurt plus extra for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste.
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and add the onion. Saute onion for 5–6 minutes until softened.
Stir in garlic, chipotle, and cumin and cook another minute until fragrant.
Add sweet potatoes, broth, water, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
Cover and cook for 20 minutes until the sweet potatoes are cooked.
Using an immersion blender, puree soup until smooth.
Add ¾ cup yogurt and puree it into the soup.
Alternatively, transfer the soup to a blender and puree it in batches.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, swirl a dollop of yogurt into each bowl and garnish with cilantro.
