Red lentils and sweet potato soup ~~ soupe de lentilles et patates douces

Hi everyone!
I don’t know if you are like me but I often plan my meal based on what my body asks. For instance, we had a lot of vegetarian dishes this week. One of them was my sweet potato red lentils soup. My kids were literally licking their plates. I planned it for two dinners but had to improvise something else for the day after. I hope you will give it a try, it’s super easy to make, delicious and just perfect for something light but filling for the evening. Besides, this soup is loaded with vitamin A!

J’espère que ma recette va vous plaire. La combination de ces légumes me fait penser à la soupe de potiron et chataîgnes; deux choses qu’il est difficile de trouver ici. N’hésitez pas à partager ma recette et me suivre sur Instagram.
