Fight A Cold - Chicken Vegetable Soup with Ginger

6 cups Canned low-salt chicken broth
1 Large russet potato, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 Large yam (red-skinned sweet potato), peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 Large onion, coarsely chopped
2 Large carrots, peeled, cubed
2 cups Broccoli florets (from about 1 large stalk)
1 Large celery stalk with leaves, chopped
1 tablespoon Chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 10-oz Package frozen corn kernels
2 cups Diced cooked chicken
1/3 cup Chopped fresh parsely


Bring chicken broth to simmer in heavy large pot or Dutch oven over high heat. Add potato, yam, onion, carrots, broccoli, celery and ginger and bring to boil. Cover pot, reduce heat to medium and simmer soup until all vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.


Puree soup in batches in blender just to chunky texture. Return soup to pot. Add corn and cooked chicken and simmer until corn is tender, about 5 minutes. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Rewarm soup over low heat before serving.)


Ladle soup into bowls, sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve
