"This absolutely delicious soup was created to help use up the Adzuki beans, wild rice, and sweet potatoes in my pantry. I decided to use the sweet potato instead of regular potatoes, and was delightfully surprised by the wonderful flavor blend it created with the sweetness of the onions, garlic, and Adzuki beans. I also wanted to try escarole in a soup, and the result was fantastic. Adzuki beans are found in any health food or specialty store, and in many national grocery chains. They have a great nutty, slightly sweet taste, and are especially tasty added to chicken soups of any kind."

  1. Place the chicken broth in a large pot. Mix in the chicken thighs, adzuki beans, wild rice, onions, and garlic. Season with sage, thyme, and rosemary. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook 1 hour.
  2. Remove chicken from the pot, shred with a fork, and set aside.
  3. Stir the sweet potato into the pot. Continue cooking about 5 minutes, until sweet potato is slightly tender. Mix in the zucchini, yellow squash, and escarole. Continue cooking 15 minutes.
  4. Return the shredded chicken to the pot. Cook until heated through. Increase the amount of broth if the soup seems too thick.

We all LOVED this one!! I used (dry) kidney beans in place of the adzuki...and I added them in toward the middle of cooking. Also, I used a box of Uncle Ben's wild rice which I cooked in the mic...

This is a fabulous soup. I usually omit the zucchini because I never seem to have it on hand. The key elements to this soup are chicken stock, adzuki beans, sweet potato, escarole, and the spice...

My husband and I both enjoyed this healthy and delicious soup. Substitutions could easily be made for personal veggie preferences. I used fresh garlic and, perhaps because I used low sodium br...

Nice change, from the normal veggies.

I was skeptical when I didn't like the smell or the look of it cooking but wanted to try my adzuki beans. Wonderful combination, rich and hearty. I put the onions in but they got too mushy so I...
