sweet potato and lentil soup

I only tried making this sweet potato and lentil soup a few days ago and I liked the result so much that I decided to share the recipe with you. It’s absolutely delicious and you wouldn’t really expect that taste with just 2 main ingredients. Want to give it a go? I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

To serve 6 you will need:

  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 200g red lentils
  • 1.5 l veggie stock
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

Preparation: Put the curry powder, cumin and chilli powder into a large saucepan, toast for a minute. Add the olive oil, onions and garlic, cook for 5 mins, stirring. Add sweet potatos, cook for another 2 mins. Add vegetable stock and lentils, simmer for 20 minutes. You may need to add more water/stock in the meantime if the soup gets very thick. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
