I made a new soup tonight. I LOVE making soups. They are so good and have great potential for being very healthy! I really enjoyed this new soup and even had enough left over for two freezer bags (not the big ones, but the medium ones). That’s two dinners for the kids and I! Yippee!!
The soup is called SWEET POTATOE AND LENTIL SOUP – and by the way I can’t remember does potatoe have an “e” at the end or not? Wasn’t this some kind of joke in the 90’s during a presidential race, or did I dream that?
I got the recipe HERE from Mama Manifesto. If you don’t subscribe to this blog I encourage you to soon. They have great recipes, great mom tips and give away lots of really cool stuff. I know someone that just won something on their site. I always wonder if real people win the giveaways … yeap they do! Maybe my winning streak is around the corner.
Anyhow try out the recipe and let me know your thoughts. Instead of chicken stock I used veggie broth. I had to use more than they said and add water too. I think I used way more lentils then it called for, b/c it was very lentily (is that a word?), which i don’t mind lentily (there it is again!) but I’m just telling you what I did. I used two big sweet potatoes and I think I could have gone for three, but maybe that’s just because mine was very lentily.
I loved it. Let me know your thoughts. It was SUPER DUPER EASY!
