Sweet Potato Coconut Soup with Red Lentils

I love this hearty yet healthy Sweet Potato Coconut Soup with Red Lentils  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. 


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


Makes 4-6 servings

Ready in 30 minutes
