“This is my new take on Chicken Noodle Soup! I've added sweet potatoes and mushrooms to give it more pizzaz and much needed nutrients. It takes a little bit of time to make, but your palate will thank you in the end! You can also make a batch of whipped sweet potatoes and serve the soup atop that. I might try that on my next go-round. Yummy! Give it a shot and let me know what you think!”
