sweet potato, carrot and rosemary soup

I had a refrigerator full of veggies and needed to use them quick!

So, I chopped, simmered, added fresh herbs, blended in the vitamix and taa-da… a simple and savory sweet potato soup was created!

The creaminess comes from cannellini beans making this soup completely vegan!

I added a pinch of fresh rosemary and black cyprus sea flakes for garnish.

(my sister-in-law bought me the sea flakes from a cute little shop in Chatham called Sea Salt and Pepper.  I wanted everything in this store!)

You could also add a drizzle of rosemary infused olive oil,  roasted pepitas or red pepper flakes for heat!
