  • dashes Cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea salt (or to taste)

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot set on medium heat. Add the onion and begin sauteeing till onion is getting translucent (about 3 minutes). Add the garlic and ginger, and continue to sautee for another 3 minutes, till garlic is fragrant. Add the yams, the red lentils, the tomatoes, the cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, and cayenne and give it all a quick stir to combine.
  2. Add 4 cups vegetable stock and bring mixture to a boil. If there isn t enough broth to cover everything but at least 1 inch, add another cup of stock. When soup boils, reduce to a simmer and cook for 40-45 minutes, or until sweet potatoes and lentils are very tender. If you need more broth as the mixture cooks, add it.
  3. Add peanut butter and stir well. Using an immersion blender, blend soup till about half of it is pureed and the other half still has texture. The soup should appear creamy, but chunks of sweet potato should be visible.
  4. Stir in the kale and let it wilt. Season to taste, adding more salt and pepper as needed.
  5. Serve, topped with a tablespoon each of green onion and crushed peanuts.

    I've made this and it's wonderful! It's nice to see a dish that contains no meat or dairy. Meat-free Mondays are a great way to start living a healthier lifestyle. Haters gonna hate, but food like this does a body good!
  • Haters!!

    @ Dan Devine.... of coarse they will try to make it look like some dog food, it is an African dish. I have eaten the dish and it is delicious. Well folks love to hate on people of color, hummm!!! sounds like jealousy to me.

    But why do they serve the soup in a dog bowl in the picture?
  • Very good but too much peanut butter

    I made this last night and it was very good. It tasted way better before I added the peanut butter though. I could never get the flavors back in balance after I added it. The chopped peanuts are good on top but next time I will reduce the pb to 1T or eliminate it all together and just sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
