Description

Creamy lentil and sweet potato soup—fast and easy, delicious and great for the whole family to enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Large Carrots, Sliced
  • 1 whole Onion
  • 4 stalks Celery, Chopped
  • 2 whole Small Sweet Potatoes (cut Into Cubes)
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 pound Trader Joe's Steamed Lentils
  • Salt To Taste

Preparation

Put your steamer basket into a large pot of water with about 6 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil.

Peel, wash and cut the carrots, 1/2 onion, celery and sweet potatoes into small pieces, put them into your steamer basket, put the lid on the pot and steam them for about 20 minutes.

Slice the remaining 1/2 onion and crush the garlic clove. Put them into a soup pot and cook them on medium heat in the olive oil. When the onion becomes see-through, add the entire pack of Trader Joe’s steamed lentils to the onion and garlic and let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes on low heat.

Once the other veggies are steamed add these, plus the water they were steamed in (approximately 6 cups) to the lentil mix. Let the mixture cook an additional 5-10 minutes, or until all veggies are soft. * Puree ingredients using an immersion blender. Add salt to desired taste.

*Note: Before blending the veggies to make the puree, I scoop out most of the liquid and blend. I add some of the water back in, while blending, until I reach the consistency I desire. We tend to make our purees thicker for our toddlers to enjoy as well.
