1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 whole large onion diced
1 tsp salt
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 quart vegetable stock
3 cups water
1 1/3 cups dry red lentils
2 1/2 cups sweet potatoes peeled and diced (about 1 large or 2-3 small sweet potatoes)
Lemon wedges (optional garnish)
Parsley (optional garnish)

Heat the olive oil in the bottom of a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add the diced onions and salt and cook until onions are soft and translucent.

Add the spices and cook until fragrant.

Add the stock, water, lentils and diced sweet potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover, leaving a small portion of the pot vented.

Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the lentils and sweet potatoes are tender. You can leave the soup chunky, or use an immersion blender for a smoother puree-like texture. Serve hot, garnished with lemon and parsley if desired.
