Meatlovers! If using protein, cook in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add to soup with sweet potatoes in Step 4. If using Beyond Sausage, crumble into bite-sized pieces. Stir often, breaking up with a spoon, until warmed through, 6-8 minutes. Vegetarian sausage will not brown. If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 1" dice. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
