Vegetable and Apple Soup
2 to 3 inner stalls of celery with the leaves, about 1 cup once it's chopped
1 small onion (a little smaller than a tennis ball but a little bigger than a golf ball), diced
1 to 2 cloves garlic (or to desisred taste), chopped
1/2 cup diced sweet potato
2 golf ball size golden potatoes (or one little larger potato), skins on and diced
1/2 large red delicious apple, diced
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tblsp parsley flakes
2 tblsp dried chives
2 tsp soy sauce (more or less to taste)
1 pint chicken broth
Add all ingredients to a medium size pot. Bring to a low boil and cook until sweet and golden potatoes are tender. Use a stick blender or put soup in a standard blender/food processor and blend until smooth. Serve with sliced apple pieces from the other half of the apple as garnish.
