Sweet Potato Lentil Soup

serves 4

2 sweet potatoes, chopped into bite-sized pieces

1 tablespoon olive oil

salt & pepper

Throw these together, spread out on a baking sheet, and roast in oven at 400 degrees until soft, 20-30 minutes

^ I did this the night before so I could make it between classes!

In a pot add

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 medium onion, chopped

1 clove garlic

Sautée these ingredients and then add

2 cups chicken broth or vegetable stock

2 cups coconut milk (any kind you like)

2 cups of water

^ You can add more or less of either of these depending on how thick you like your soup

1 tablespoon curry powder

2 teaspoons paprika

Using a regular blender or an immersion blender, blend liquid and sweet potatoes together, put the mixture back into the pot, and add

1 cup uncooked lentils (these will soak up a lot of liquid so if it seems too thick a few minutes in add some water

Bring to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until lentils are soft.

Add salt and pepper to taste, some cilantro, and a squeeze of lime to top it off!
