The Cookbook Challenge continues!!
I halved the recipe and forgot to buy kale, so here are the ingredients that I used:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 leeks (white and light green parts), cut into 1/4-inch-thick half moons
- 1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
- 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1/4 cup brown lentils
- 1/2 tablespoon thyme
- Salt and black pepper
And here’s what I did with those ingredients:
I heated the oil in a large saucepan. Added the leeks and cooked, stirring occasionally, until they began to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Then, I added the tomatoes and cooked for 5 minutes.
Next, I stirred in the sweet potatoes and added 3 cups water.
Then, I added the lentils.
And thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
I let the soup cook on medium-low heat until the sweet potatoes and lentils were tender, about 25-30 minutes.
