Red lentil and sweet potato soup

Yesterday my family and I were going to have lunch with some other family members. We wanted to make something quick, vegan and warm and my sister suggested we make soup!! And then i suggested we make my favourite lentil and sweet potato soup with some bread and salad.

There isn’t much of a recipe or measurements, it’s just to throw together the ingredients and add more water/oatmilk/salt/seasoning according to taste.



400g red lentils

C.a.800g sweet potato

Vegetable fond

400ml coconut milk or oat cream

1 can crushed tomatoes


How to: begin with cooking the sweet potato with vegetable fond before adding the red lentils and crushed garlic. After c.a 10 minutes add the crushed tomatoes and lastly coconut milk/oat cream. Season according to taste.

Either eat as it is or puree with a handmixer! Eat with some bread and maybe croutons or roasted seeds!!!

Also you can add other vegetables like carrots, onion, butternut squash to the mix 🙂 also i like to add beans and sweet corn if i don’t puree the soup!!

This is one of my favourite soups and is very filling!!! Really doesn’t require a recipe or measurements!! 🙂 super simple to make and perfect now with the snow and minus degrees! Also, perfect to combine with some freshly baked scones!!!

    This looks really good and so warming!
    Have you ever made soda bread to go with your soup? Its incredibly quick and easy as you don`t have to yeast it and you can make it with normal flour – not strong bread flour, so it uses ingredients you`ll probably already have at home
    I hope you had a lovely weekend with your family!


    1. Thank you. I made soda bread in the past 2013 i think, but the recipes i have seen have requierd buttermilk i think so haven’t made it as a vegan… i usually just combine with scones or some other quick bread. But i might find some irish soda bread recipe that is vegan!!!
