Delicious Winter Soup

Sweet Potato Onion SoupI love eating with the seasons, so much that I have a Seasonal Eating Program. During the winter, our natural tendency is to slow down, go within, and reflect. By nourishing the body with natural whole foods, we honor the organs associated with that season.  Being Winter, according to  Chinese medicine, we will nurture the kidneys, adrenal glands, and the bladder. 
Eating with the seasons  also allows you to enjoy meals around foods that have been harvested at their peak before losing nutrients compared to those that have been shipped long distance.
This is one of my seasonal soups in my Winter Program.
Soup of the day: SWEET POTATO ONION SOUP
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups broth (chicken or vegetable) OR water
2 large oranges, juiced
1 carrot, chopped
1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
ASSEMBLE THE SOUP. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add oil followed by sliced onion and garlic. Sauté 3 minutes until fragrant. Add broth, orange juice, carrot, sweet potato, parsley, salt and pepper. Cover pot and let simmer 15-20 minutes until potatoes are soft.
Remove from heat and place mixture in blender. Remove the vent to allow steam to escape. Cover the hole in the top with a clean towel and blend until smooth and serve.
