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.
