1/8 tsp Cayenne
Fine Sea Salt
2-3 Medium Sweet potatoes, peeled & cut into 3/4″ cubes
7 Cups Vegetable Broth

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large, deep pot. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently for 2 minutes or until the onion starts to soften. Stir in the tomatoes & ginger and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, cayenne and a pinch of salt. Cook and stir for 2 minutes, then taste for seasonings.
Add the sweet potatoes, broth & lentils. Stir well and bring to a boil over high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes and lentils are soft.
