Warm You Up Winter Lentil Soup

During the winter months, I am all about homemade soup! This Winter Lentil was definitely up there on my top 10. The original recipe called for sweet potato but I am a Japanese Yam addict so I made a substitution. It was very easy to make with limited prep although please be aware that leeks affect your eyes in the same way as onions :) Enjoy!


INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil 
  • 4 leeks (white and light green part), cut into 1/4 inch-thick half-moons
  • 1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, drained
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces 
  • 1 bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves cut into 1/2-inch wide strips
  • 1/2 cup brown lentils 
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme 
  • Himalayan salt and black pepper
  • 6 cups of water


DIRECTIONS:
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook, stirring occasionally for about 3-4 minutes, until they begin to soften. Add the drained tomatoes and cook, breaking them up with a spoon, for about 4-5 minutes. 
  2. Add 6 cups of water and bring to a boil. Stir in the sweet potatoes, kale, lentils, thyme, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Simmer for about 25-30 minutes until lentils are tender. 
  3. Spoon into bowls and enjoy!!
