1/2 cup split red lentils
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into ½-inch (1 cm) pieces
1 cup milk
2 cups baby spinach
2 Tbsp of lemon juice
Plain Yogurt for serving (optional)
Place broth, onion and curry paste in a large saucepan.
Bring to a boil. Add lentils, reduce heat and simmer covered for 5 minutes.
Add sweet potato, continue to simmer covered about 10 min until lentils and sweet potatoes are tender.
Add milk to hot soup.
Ladle about ⅓ of the soup into a blender or food processor.
