250g cooked cubed sweet potato
1/4 cup Trader Joe's Salsa Autentica (or your favorite salsa)
1/4 cup split peas (dried)
1/4 cup lentils (dried)
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp ground cumin
2 cups hot water
In a small pot, add the water to the lentils and peas. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes with the lid tilted to let off steam.
While the peas are cooking, process the sweet potatoes, garlic, and salsa in a food processor, blender, or immersion blender. When the peas are cooked thoroughly, add the spices and sweet potato mixture to the pot (do not drain the water). Stir to combine.
Raise heat to bring the soup to a boil, then lower to low, cover, and let it simmer for 5 minutes or until soup is thoroughly hot!
Makes 2 servings.
