Red Lentil Soup

red lentil soup

NOTE: cast iron pot would be best for this recipe.
The leftover roasted sweet potatoes in the fridge will add a rich, sweet taste, and some cauliflower cut in small pieces will add nutrition.

A cup of red lentils
Roasted sweet potato (about a cup)
A small Hot Pepper
The Cauliflower (about a cup)
A minced clove of Garlic


Rinse a cup of red lentils and put them into a 1-1/2 quart enamelled cast iron pot with the roasted sweet potatoes, a small, whole hot pepper, the cauliflower and a minced clove of garlic.

Fill the pot halfway with water and bring it to a boil then turn it down to the lowest simmer for about an hour.

Add some water if too thick. Add some salt, fresh ground pepper and a dash of good quality vinegar for tang to balance the sweetness.

Tasting great with a piece of homemade toasted bread.
