Ingredients (14)

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 2 large sweet potatoes peeled, chopped
  • 3 large carrots peeled, chopped
  • 1 apple peeled, cored, chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • ½ cup red lentils
  • ½ teaspoon minced, fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 4 cups vegetable broth

Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Melt the butter in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Place the chopped sweet potatoes, carrots, apple, and onion in the pot. Stir and cook the apples and vegetables until the onions are translucent, about 10 minutes.
  • Step 2
    Stir the lentils, ginger, ground black pepper, salt, cumin, chili powder, paprika, and vegetable broth into the pot with the apple and vegetable mixture. Bring the soup to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the lentils and vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes.
  • Step 3
    Working in batches, pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot.
  • Step 4
    Return the pureed soup to the cooking pot. Bring back to a simmer over medium-high heat, about 10 minutes. Add water as needed to thin the soup to your preferred consistency. Serve with light dressing for garnish.
