Skinny Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup

A few years ago we fell in love with a delicious sweet potato and sausage recipe from Epicurious.  The smoked meat, wilted spinach, and potatoes made for a delicious and hearty meal

Since cleaning up our diets I wanted to try to create a different version and came up with a skinny slow cooker sweet potato and sausage soup.

Skinny Slow Cooker Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup
  • - 3 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ¼-inch thick pieces
  • - 2 tbs olive oil
  • - Turkey Kielbasa cut into ¼-inch thick slices
  • - 2 medium onions, chopped
  • - 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • - 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • - 1 9oz bag of fresh spinach
  1. Heat 2 tbs olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, garlic, and Kielbasa. Cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent and Kielbasa has browned.
  2. Place onion, garlic, Kielbasa, sweet potatoes, and chicken broth in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  3. * Once sweet potatoes are cooked through you can take a potato masher to mash some to create a thicker base.
  4. Just before serving add spinach to slow cooker. Allow it to wilt and serve.
