Sweet Potato and Bone Broth Soup

Sweet Potato and Bone Broth Soup

I feel as if I'm living off soup at the moment. It's great when I've got a cold (which I always seem to have right now!) or my gut isn't happy. I always find soups really easy to digest, as obviously everything is blended smoothly. I've made this soup in batches every few days at the moment and it just uses a handful of ingredients.

I either use pure bone broth (which I do find seems to help an angry gut in my own experience) or, if I can't get that, I use chicken stock (and try to get one with as high a concentration of chicken bones as possible and one with very few added ingredients). I then just add some sweet potato, parsnip, and potato, cook, and then blend! It's super easy to make and is delicious.
