Curried Sweet Potato, Lentil and Chicken Soup

This soup started my love affair with lentils way back in 2007.

I’ve been holding onto this little booklet of recipes just for this one soup recipe. The pages are wrinkly and discolored and yet, I’ve packed it with every move for over 10 years. 🙂

I’m sharing it with all of you because it’s easy, healthy and I don’t want to lose the recipe. 😉

Enjoy!
