DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat and add onion and garlic.
  • Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and slightly caramelized.
  • 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.
  • Puree the soup, I usually just use a potato masher. But you could use one of those 'stick' blenders.
  • If it seems too thick after blending, add another cup of stock or water and stir well.
