Nothing welcomes fall more than a warm and delicious soup. Lentils are nutritious and are great for fiber and protein intake–and also make for a hearty meal. With just a few basic ingredients, this Lentil Soup recipe can be made both quickly and easily.

  • 1/2 yellow onion (or red onion for more color!)

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock
