Clear Skin Soup
Makes 8-10 Cups

Ingredients:
3 Small Sweet Potatoes (Peeled and diced)
1 Cup Shredded or Diced Carrots
1/2 Cup Frozen Beans (I use lima, navy, or kidney depending on what I have)
1 Onion (Peeled and Diced)
6 Pieces of Garlic Peeled and Diced
Optional: Any other veggie in your refrigerator- I threw in a few grape tomatoes, a few pieces of broccoli, and some snowpeas I had leftover from a Christmas veggie tray.
1 carton Trader Joes Carrot Ginger Soup
1 carton Trader Joes Low Sodium vegetable broth
1 Tsp. Ground Ginger
1 Tsp. Ground Turmeric
1 Tsp. Parsley
1 Tsp. Ground Chipotle Seasoning
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder

Pour in about half a cup of Low sodium vegetable broth. Saute the onion, carrots, and sweet potatoes over medium heat for 5 minutes. Then add in the garlic and any other vegetables you want to add (except for the beans!) and saute everything for an additional 2 minutes. Next pour in all remaining liquids, beans, and all seasonings. Turn the burner to medium low heat and let your soup simmer for 30 minutes to an hour. Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator for up to three days.
