Okay.....I won't lie. Sweet Potato and Lentil soup sounded yyyeeeeccchhhh. After searching for a healthy dinner that was smack full of protein minus all the beef, I reached for Alicia Silverstone's recipe from her Kind Life book.
Then, I had to find the darn lentils. What were they? A leafy green? Rice? I had no idea (shame!). A quick google and I realized the obvious - beans! So in the bean section, I found an entire bag for 97 cents. Certainly nothing good was gonna come from under a buck. Right?
I was wrong. After cutting, chopping, and throwing a few ingredients in the crock pot, 6 hours later, my hubs and I walked into the best smell our kitchen's had in a while! The sweet potato lentil soup was a hit. I'm actually calling mine a chili, because our version was a little thick and we ate it with crackers.
All in all? Flo's Lentil Love will hang around for a while!
3 cups sweet potato, peeled & chopped
