lentil soup with sweet potatoes


This is a very hearty soup for those colder days. It is easy to make, but requires some cooking time. This is a popular soup with vegetarians, but it doesn't have to be so limited. If you want some meat flavor, toss in a few chicken legs.

  • 1 ½ cup of lentils, rinsed
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled, diced
