Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks white and light green parts only, chopped (or 1 medium onion, chopped)
  • 1 large carrot chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled and chopped into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 32- ounce containers College Inn Fat Free and Reduced Sodium Garden Vegetable Broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ teaspoon salt plus more to taste
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper plus more to taste
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups packed chopped kale or baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves

Instructions

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the leek and carrot and cook, stirring frequently, until just beginning to soften, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the sweet potato, 1 cup of water, the broth, bay leaves, salt, and pepper, and bring to a simmer.
  • Simmer, lowering the heat if you need to, until the sweet potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli, cauliflower, and kale and cook until the broccoli is bright green and tender but not soggy, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the parsley and thyme. Taste the broth and season with more salt and pepper if needed
