Sweet Potato, Kale, and Lentil Soup

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

Soup is one of my favorite things to eat when it's cold outside, and this soup is definitely a good one!! I came up with this recipe because as a pescetarian (someone who eats fish but not meat), I am always looking for healthy, plant based proteins that are also delicious, and lentils definitely fit the bill! But fear not carnivores, I promise you'll love it too!! 

Sweet potato, Kale, and Lentil Soup

Serves 6

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 50 minutes


2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 yellow onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp cumin

3/4 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp chili powder

6 cups low sodium vegetable stock

1.25 cups dried lentils, rinsed

1 sweet potato, peeled and diced

1 bunch of kale, chopped and stems removed

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup chopped parsley, optional


  1. In a large pot, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil for about 2 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the cumin, coriander, turmeric, and chili powder, and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  2. Add the vegetable stock, lentils, sweet potato, and salt and bring to a boil. Then cover the pot and reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes.

  3. Add the kale, stirring it until wilted, and cook for five more minutes.

  4. Serve hot with the chopped parsley on top as a garnish if you desire.
