Sweet potato, carrot and red lentil soup

1 tbsp ghee, coconut oil or olive oil
1 large onion
2 sweet potatoes
4 carrots
4 sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried thyme
1 cup / 250 ml uncooked red lentils
4 cups / 1 liter water
sea salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste


Heat oil in a pot. Add onions and sauté until fragrant. 
Add sweet potatoes, carrots and thyme and cook for a minute or so, while stirring. 
Now add rinsed lentils, water, sea salt and pepper, cover and let simmer for 20-25 minutes 
until the vegetables and lentils are soft.

Use an immersion (hand) blender to puree the soup. Taste and adjust the flavors. 
Serve the soup in bowls with a good drizzle of olive oil and a few leaves of fresh thyme.

I made this soup last week. And it was delicious.
And having a big kettle of soup led to inviting friend over for lunch on Saturday.
We had a great time. Good food and friends. There is nothing better.

Tein keitto viime viikolla. Ja oli kyllä hyvää.
Koska kotona oli iso kattilallinen keittoa, päädyin pyytämään ystäviä syömään lauantaina.
Oli ihanaa. Hyvä ruoka ja ystävät. Ei oo parempaa.
