This recipe is my favourite type of recipe, it’s easy! Just spend a few minutes chopping, throw it in your slow-cooker and you have yourself a recipe for Sweet Potato Lentil Soup. It’s packed full of healthy and yummy veggies, making it perfect for these cold evenings! I recommend drizzling olive oil and sprinkling cheese on top, and then hopping under a blanket to enjoy your delicious bowl of steamy soup.
