Basic Sweet Potato and Red Lentil Soup.

“This is one of my favourite soup recipes. Perfect in winter. It is thick, filling and a little spicy. It is also inexpensive and freezes well. It can be spiced up using chilli , cummin/corriander, or what ever spices you like. with Serve with lebanese bread.”

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat and add onion and garlic.
  2. Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and slightly caramelized.
  3. Add stock, sweet potato, 1 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Simmer the soup for about 30-40 minutes, until the lentils and sweet potatoes are tender.
  4. Puree the soup, I usually just use a potato masher. But you could use one of those 'stick' blenders.
  5. If it seems too thick after blending, add another cup of stock or water and stir well.
