Sweet Potato Soup

I recently went to a nutrition workshop where Alene Brennan gave coaching about amazing seasonal eats for the winter. She gave amazing information and even brought some tasty treats along with her! My favorite of the evening was by far the Sweet Potato Soup!

1. Place the first 6 ingredients in a large pot and bring to boil. Reduce to low heat, cover and simmer until all ingredients are soft and the lentils are falling apart (approx. 25 minutes). Let soup sit uncovered for 10 minutes.

2. Add coconut milk. Using a blender, puree soup. Add salt to taste.

3. Garnish with cilantro, pomegranate seeds or any other tasty treat. Serve & Enjoy!
