  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced into cubes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup canned or boxed diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup dried black lentils, rinsed
  • 3 cups broth I use Better than Bouillon No Chicken


  1. Heat olive oil in soup pot over medium.  Add the diced onion and saute for about 3 minutes, stirring.  Then add the cubed sweet potato and saute for another 3 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for one minute.

  2. Add the tomato, lentils, and broth and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer, cover with lid tilted and cook for 25 – 30 minutes or until lentils are tender.

  3. Puree with an immersion blender (or let cool slightly and transfer to a blender) until desired consistency is reached. (I left it slightly chunky for some texture.)  Topping suggestions: queso fresco, cilantro, cilantro sauce, shredded cheese, brown rice, sriracha, etc.
