A great soup that is easy and delicious using the mighty "little" lentil! This is one of my favourite soup recipes that I never get sick of! It even freezes great.
|3 cups vegetable stock||1 onion - diced|
|1 sweet potato - peeled and diced||2 carrots - diced|
|2 stalks celery - diced||1 19 oz / 540ml can lentils - drained and rinsed|
|1 tsp cumin||1/4 tsp - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper|
|1 tbsp olive oil||salt to taste|
1. Combine olive oil, onion, carrots, and celery. Cook for roughly 5 minutes to bring out the natural sugars in veggies.
2. Add sweet potato, lentils, cumin, and broth. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for at least 20 minutes.
3. Once all vegetables appear to be soft, puree. Add cayenne, and salt to taste. Serve!
**Start by adding a little cayenne at a time. I prefer my soup to be extra spicy, but you don't want to over do it.
