Kale & Sweet Potato Soup

We all want to boost are immune system, so why not try a bowl of soup that can help us do just that.  This was really easy to make and tasty too!  I really hope you try this one, I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 small yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
4 cups vegetable broth
1 bunch dinosaur kale, chopped
2 tablespoons Italian parsley
Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
Salt & Pepper to taste

METHOD:

1)  Saute onions and garlic in olive oil over medium-high heat.  Use a pot that can contain all the above ingredients, 5 minutes.
2)  Next, add sweet potatoes and vegetable broth and boil in the pot until the sweet potatoes are tender.  Add the kale to the soup just long enough to get bright green, 2 minutes.
3)  Take the soup off the stove, add the parsley, and puree in a blender or Cuisinart until smooth.
4)  Serve with toasted sesame seeds and season with salt and pepper to your liking.
This was really good and very easy!
