This sweet potato lentil soup is one of our favorite comforting recipes! It’s naturally vegan and seasoned with cumin, chili powder, lime, and cilantro.
I know its summer but it’s the coldest day we’ve had in months so I’m sharing this sweet potato lentil soup recipe. I’ve been sitting on it for months now but it’s too good to keep a secret any longer… whether its August or not! I love grilling, salads, fruit, and all things summer, but I’m already craving fall flavors. Bring on the sweet potato, butternut squash, and tasty stews.
This recipe is naturally vegan, but it ended up that way by accident. I didn’t even notice until I went to type up the recipe and realized it was animal product free. Woohoo! Make it for all your vegan homies. And if you’re not vegan, add a dollop of sour cream and/or a sprinkle of cheese for yourself. Not necessary, but a super tasty addition since its kind of chili like in texture, but with a totally different flavor profile.
The first lentil soup recipe I shared was curry flavored and this one is more tortilla soup meets chili meets tabo. This sweet potato lentil soup recipe uses cumin, chili powder, lime, cilantro and all the fixins. It’s unlike any of the other curry-flavored lentil soups I’ve tried. Nothing against curry, just a different spin for you today.
Plus, this one has sweet potato and carrot, which makes it feel thick like a stew. That extra meatiness makes it even more filling than lentils already are. Even die hard meat eaters won’t miss the meat in this meatless meal. If you’re looking for more meatless meals, these eggplant lasagna rollups, stuffed spinach artichoke portobellos, or this roasted veggie pasta are all divine!
In addition to being a meatless meal, its a one pot meal too! In the words of the handmaidens, “praise be!” Yeesh, that show has me feeling all kinds of crazy feels. Season two is even more horrific than the first one too. We’ve been watching it before bed and when I’m finally able to wind down and fall asleep, I feverishly dream of wearing a red dress in a dystopian, patriarchal society and wake up feeling… weird. Super weird. I’m equal parts dreading and looking forward to this season ending.
BUT, I digress. I’ll keep my TV obsessions to myself for now and get back to talking about this delicious sweet potato lentil soup for you. …
