Chunky Veggie Soup

This recipe is part of a regimen I feed to add weight to my CF DDF508, GERD, CFRD 35 y/o husband.

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped
4 ribs of celery, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
4 cups chicken stock
2 tablespoons fresh basil
2 tablespoons fresh oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Greek yogurt for topping (optional)

Heat olive oil in a stockpot over medium-high heat.
Sauté all chopped veggies except tomatoes.
Lower heat to medium and add tomatoes, stock, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, and chili powder. Bring to boil.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.
Puree soup to uniform consistency, or leave chunky if you like.
Serve and top with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt.

Approx carbs for the entire dish: 60g (without yogurt)
