We kind of love soups around here. In fact, my KIDS eat soup like crazy too. Especially if we let them dunk bread in it.
I’ve been making this recipe for Spiced Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup for a while, and it really is SO easy. Mostly because it’s in the crockpot. You can substitute Butternut squash for the sweet potato too if you don’t like sweet potatoes.
Spiced Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup (For the Crockpot)
Doesn’t that sound easy? It really is. Let me know if you try it! The garam masala is what makes this soup, and it’s one of my favorite spices to cook with. Don’t try to substitute it, or it won’t taste as good!
Ha, you answered my FB question, but butternut squash is worse than a sweet potatoe! We do like us some lentils though. You’ve really gotten good at the whole food pictures thing, haven’t you?
I’m trying! 🙂 Hmmm…maybe regular potatoes? Do you like those? I’m sure they would work fine!
I’m pretty sure that garam masala is one of the most amazing spices ever!
This sounds delicious and I’m excited to try it, provided I can talk my boys into it 😀
It is isn’t it?? I use it in a few recipes, and I always LOVE it whenever it’s in a recipe. 🙂

I’m gonna have to give this a try since we are mixed when it comes to lentil. Male half loves it, female half is blah about it. Since I’d like to make it more often I need something that will make my daughter and me more excited about it!
I used to be kind of blah about it too. But, I like this recipe a lot! 🙂 Let me know if she eats it.

Okay- this looks amazing!!! BUT- what the heck is garam masala??? I’m pinning so I can make this!
It’s just a spice. So yummy. You’ll love it.

Cooking time in cast iron over low heat? Please? No room on the counter for a crockpot.
I wish I knew! I’ve never cooked in a cast iron. But, my guess would be a couple of hours to give enough time for the carrots and sweet potatoes to soften? Good luck!
Since I can’t seem to keep straight what I’ve I’ve got stored in the cupboard, will be trying this with split peas. (Now watch lentils turn up when I go to put away the ones I’m about to go buy.)
