Ingredients:  
2 T. olive oil, plus more for garnish
2 yellow onions, chopped
Sea Salt
1 1/4 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
3 1/2 c. water
2 to 3 T. chopped fresh sage leaves
1 bunch kale
1 bunch green chard
8 cloves garlic, peeled
3 c. vegetable broth
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh lemon juice

Directions:
Directions:
1. Heat olive oil in a medium pot over medium-low heat. Add the onions and a pinch of salt and stir frequently until the onions are soft and golden brown, 20 to 30 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, place the sweet potatoes in a large post with 3 1/2 cups water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the sage. Bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, about 10 minutes.
3. Wash the kale and chard, trim away the tough stems, and chop. Add to sweet potatoes along with garlic and vegetable broth. Cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes. Add the onions to the soup and let cool slightly. (The cooling is a step not to be skipped! I didn't and the blender blew up all over the kitchen.)
4. Puree the mixture in a blender in batches, and return the pureed soup to the pot. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. To serve, drizzle olive oil over individual bowls of soup.
