Sweet Potato Lentil Coconut Soup

Comfort food season is upon us. I like the cosy kind. By cosy I mean comforting, bowl food, ideally with some body loving goodness that will leave me feeling full, satisfied and also give my body a little bit of what it needs to help fight off any potential autumnal and winter illnesses floating around! The more nutrients and colour the better!

This soup is loaded with lentils, sweet and kale, among other things, and also given an extra boost of fibre and Vitamin D by simply adding in Linwoods milled flax with Vitamin D! Such a handy one.

The ingredient might look kind of lengthy, but it’s a simple one. Also, of all the uncooked forms of legumes, maybe aside from peas, using uncooked lentils in soups, stews, curries, is just so economical and super easy as they cook a heck of a lot faster than the likes of chickpeas and other such beans.
