Thai Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup with Red Lentils 

We love this hearty yet healthy soup recipe from Yummy Beet. Using sweet potato in addition to coconut milk gives this soup a delicious creamy texture, and the addition of lentils adds a source of vegetarian protein for a balanced meal. Best part? It’s ready in under 30.


To make, you'll combine water, sweet potatoes, onion, red lentils, garlic, ginger, chili, vegetable stock, and salt, and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Once sweet potatoes are soft, you'll puree with an emersion blender, then stir in coconut milk, curry powder, and lime juice. Dinner is served!

What you'll need:
  • 3 cups of water

  • 4 small-medium sweet potatoes

  • 1 onion

  • 1/2 cup red lentils

  • 1 clove garlic

  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger

  • 1 fresh chili

  • 2 tsp vegetable bouillon powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1-13oz can coconut milk

  • 1 Tbsp curry powder or Thai curry paste

  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
