Lentil Tomato soup

Lentil tomato soup & sweet potato

Boil any kind of lentils in water (cooking time depends on type of lentil), I used 2 cup green lentils which take about 1/2 hour to cook (they are ready when soft) add in during the last 5 minutes of cooking: 1  cans of tomato (pureed or just diced) and 1-2 bouillon cubes. In a separate no stick skillet sauete 2-3 diced up onions in a smidge of olive oil, as they begin to brown add in 1-2 tsp each of  Garam Masala, Tumeric, Cumin, salt and pepper. In a separate pot boil 4- 6 sweet potatoes, this takes about 10 minutes.

This is a well balanced meal that is a snap to make, stores and reheats well, and gives you a feeling of fullness that lasts a long time.

Serves 4-6
