I love how healthy this recipe is, but it was pretty bland for us and I had to Dr. it up a bit. Maybe my sweet potato was too big, but I felt there needed to be something added to balance it's flavor. I added a pinch of dried thyme and a little balsamic vinegar. This will be nice to have on hand for a healthy snack or a light meal. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Yes, this certainly is easy, and tasty too! I made this exactly as posted, except I also threw in some red kidney beans that I had leftover in the fridge. The edamame is a really nice touch, and this soup is guilt-free! One feels positively virtuous (and autumn-y) eating this! Made for Rookie Recipe Tag Game.
