Sweet potato and lentil soup

I needed to find a simple recipe with ingredients that I had at home for lunch today; and I wanted to use my newly made chicken broth as well. This is what I found (it is a thermomix recipe, but could easily be made in a pot on the stove):

Sweet potato and lentil soup


  • 1 med onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 cm pieceof ginger, peeled
  • 1 long red chilli (I didn’t have one, so I used 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • pinch of sugar
  • 2 medium sweet potato (approx 400 grams)
  • 100 grams red lentils (I needed to add some Green French lentils because we didn’t have enough of the red ones)
  • 2 Tbs TM vegetable stok concentrate (I used my chicken broth)
  • 1 filtered water (I used my chicken broth)
  • fresh coriander, to garnish


Place chilli, garlic, onion and ginger into bowl and chop on speed 7for 2 secs. Add cumin to the other ingredients in the bowl and sautee on 100 degrees, 3 mins, speed 1.

Add remaining ingredients except coriander and cook on 100 degrees for 25 minutes on speed 1. Puree for 1 minute on speed 9. Serve with fresh coriander if desired.

It smells divine!
