Sweet Potato Broccoli Soup

You will need:
4 large sweet potatoes

2 large carrots

1 head of broccoli

1 large onion (red or vidalia)

2 cloves of garlic

8 cups vegetable broth

sea salt to taste

black pepper to taste

1 tbsp of turmeric

olive oil or coconut oil

Peel and chop sweet potatoes and set aside.  Chop broccoli, carrots, onions and garlic.  Heat some olive oil in a stock pot and gently cook the raw vegetables until the onions are softened.  Add the 8 cups of vegetable broth, sweet potatoes, and turmeric.  Boil until everything is soft (about 45 minutes).  Blend to desired consistency with a hand blender, or transfer to a high powered blender such as a Blentech or a Vitamix.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  If you like a bit of spice to your soup add about 1 tsp of chili powder.
