1 cup puréed pumpkin flesh
1 sweet potato, cubed
1 cup dried red lentils
1 can light coconut milk
1/2 head of garlic
1/2 onion
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp maple syrup
olive oil

Sauté 1/2 head garlic and 1/2 onion in olive oil for 10 minutes. Add in 1 cubed microwave-cooked sweet potato, 1 cup cooked puréed pumpkin flesh, 1 cup dried red lentils, and 1 can light coconut milk. Then, add a quart of water as the soup cooks to avoid it becoming too thick. Then add in the cumin, cayenne and maple syrup.

Boil for 45 minutes.

Add salt to taste after the soup has finished cooking.

Pour the soup into a blender and purée it to a desired texture. Enjoy!
