This soup is so yummy, I have been drooling as I write this.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do when you make it.
If you use a stock pot, just cook the onions and garlic until tender in the first step, the sweet potatoes until al dente (cooked, but nowhere near falling apart) in the third step, and follow the 4th and 5th steps as written.
This recipe is a spin off on a recipe for Shrimp, Potato, and White Bean Soup that was given to my by an Italian friend 20 years ago.  It's simple ingredients, but the outcome is really special.  Enjoy!!

I like these chick peas.  Click HERE.  They must be soaked over night, rinsed, and pressure cooked.  But worth the effort.  Once you make a batch you can freeze them.  I like to make a large batch and put them in zip lock bags for use later.  For some reason canned beans (even the pressure cooked ones) don’t agree with me.

Dr Gundry does recommend the Eden brand of canned beans.  Click HERE.  Or to buy them in bulk.  Click HERE.
