I’ve had a good lentil soup on my must make for a while and boy it’s a goodie. Packed with flavour and texture, this vegan Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup with Baked Tofu is the ultimate comforting soup as we head into Winter.
What makes this Red Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup stand out from the crowd?
Baking the sweet potatoes and tofu. By roasting the sweet potatoes and then blitzing half before adding to the lentils it gives this vegan lentil soup incredible flavour but also a wonderful thickness. Bakign the tofu till crispy also adds to that increible texture.
The Crispy garlic and chilli oil with sizzled parsley. DON’T SKIP this guys. It takes 2 minutes and i promise is THE BEST in terms of adding awesome flavour to this lentil soup. Sounds fancy but it’s literally frying up some sliced garlic and chilli. have you tried crisping up herbs before? OMG game changer topping for soups. Then drizzle over the oil from the pan and mix in. YUM!
OPTIONAL EXTRAS FOR NON VEGANS
If you’re not vegan then I recommend adding in some cooked chorizo or even crisped up oven baked parma ham or bacon. Really good.
I hope you guys enjoy this as much as we did.
