Ingredients:

  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 500 grams), chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced and crushed

  • 0.5 tsp paprika
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 0.5 tsp turmeric
  • 2 liters vegetable broth
  • 100g spinach, roughly¬†chopped
  • 50 cl lemon juice

Method:

  • Heat the vegetable broth, until cooking.
  • Add the vegetables and the spices.
  • Let it simmer for app. 1 hour. Then check the lentils whether they are ready.
  • Take half of the soup, and blend it. Then add it back to the rest.
