Another Lentil Soup....

With my new found lifestyle (reference diet blog below), I am trying to make more and more recipes that are both grain free and dairy free. After 2 weeks I had my first starchy veggie and added a sweet potato to the mix. Here is the recipe that I made so that I could still enjoy my Indian food...

Add 2 cups chopped leeks, 1 peeled and chopped sweet potato, olive oil, and pepper to pot. Sautee about 10 min. Add 2 small tomatoes diced, 1 tspn ginger, 1 tspn tumeric, 1 tspn cumin, 1 tspn coriander, 1/2 tspn cinnamon, 1/4 tspn cayenne and saute for 5 min.
Add 4 cups (1 box) of veggie broth and 4 cups water. Heat on high for 5 min.
Then add 2 cups of red lentils - cook until tender (about 20 min).

Say Yum!
