Grocery List:

2 bay leaves
1 – 2 teaspoons chili powder (to taste)
1 – 2 teaspoons thyme (to taste)
1 – 2 teaspoons sage (to taste)
salt (to taste)

  • Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil with 1 teaspoon of each spice
  • When onions are translucent add bay leaves, squash, sweet potato, and broth until vegetables start to soften.
  •  Add salt and pepper and more spices if needed.
  • Add beans
  • When everything is cooked through, use a masher to break the soup (may still be slightly chunky)

Serve immediately and enjoy!
