Lentil & Sweet Potato Soup

sweet potato lentil soup

I love making soup because you get to throw everything in a pot and let the stove do the rest of the work. This soup tastes great and has some healthy ingredients too.

What You’ll Need

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 medium vidalia onion, finely chopped

4 small carrots (or 3 medium), chopped

2 Tbsp curry powder

1 tsp salt & pepper

2 Tbsp freshly grated ginger

3 large garlic cloves, minced

48 oz low sodium chicken broth

2 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes

1 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes
(I used diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery, and onion– but plain would work too)

1 cup of brown lentils

How to Prepare

1. Heat olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat.

2. Add theĀ onionsĀ and carrots. Saute until onions are tender, about 5 mins.

3. Add ginger, garlic, curry, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 2 mins.

4. Pour in chicken broth, sweet potatoes, diced tomatoes (with juice), and lentils. Turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil for 1 minute.

5. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender.

This makes about 8-10 servings.
