Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup

Another Meatless Monday inspired choice. It was a COLD and WET Monday that demanded a pot of hot soup. Luckily Two Peas & Their Pod were on the same page; their recipe for Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup came through my feed at Ay Sontespli’s Kitchen¬†and I think I had most of the ingredients in my pantry? Well, almost and that was good enough for me.
