Ingredients

  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup French lentils
  • 2 small sweet potatoes, cut into 1" pieces
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • pinch of ground cayenne
  • handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Haas avocado, chopped

Instructions

  1. Put all of the ingredients, except the avocado and cilantro, into a soup pot or Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for about 30 or 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are cooked.
  2. Use your immersion blender to puree the stew until it's nice and smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender, let the stew cool, then ladle it into your blender and puree until it's pretty much smooth. Return to the pot to heat it back up, and serve with avocado and cilantro to garnish.
