I know, it's a mouthful of a title, but at least it's a tasty mouthful! This soup may sound a bit strange, but trust me- it's DELICIOUS!! My meat-loving husband went back over and over and over again for more. Besides tasting great, with a fantastic variety of flavors, it's also extremely nutritious! Just google nutrition facts on lentils and sweet potatoes if you don't believe me. So, before Spring comes, take advantage of one of those wretched cold days and serve this up to lighten your family's hearts!
1/4 c. butter
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
1 apple, peeled, cored and chopped (I left the skins on mine)
1 onion, chopped
1/2 c. lentils
1/4 tsp. ginger powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
4 c. vegetable broth
So easy to cook. You can cut and peel everything ahead of time if you want and then just pour it all in the pot to cook in the evening. It is so so so good. Get ready to wow your family with this one!
