Ingredients

1 medium/large yellow onion, sliced into thin ribbons

3/4 tablespoon berbere spice blend*

1/4 cup tomato sauce

3/4 cup black lentils

1 cup sweet potato (or other potato), diced

4 cups vegetable broth

2 bay leaves

1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme

1 tablespoon tamari

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

1 handful of chopped greens (optional)

1 tablespoon lime juice

1/2 avocado, diced (optional)

1 tablespoon coconut yogurt (optional)

Preparation

1Heat a large soup pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add onions to the dry pot and saute for 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and add a few tablespoons of water as needed to keep the onions from drying out while they simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently.

2Once the onions are jelly-like in consistency, add the berbere spice blend. Cook until spices are fragrant, 2-3 minutes, then add lentils, sweet potato and tomato sauce. Mix until combined, then add the vegetable broth and bay leaf and thyme, increase heat back to medium.

3Bring pot to a boil then reduce the heat down to a simmer and cook covered for 20 minutes.

4Add the tamari, balsamic vinegar, and handful of chopped greens, if using. At this point taste to adjust salt and spices. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes and remove bay leaf and add a splash of lime juice before serving. Serve with chopped avocado and/or coconut yogurt to cool things down and balance out the spices.

Additional Notes

The potency of berbere spice blends will vary. If you are sensitive to spices, start with 1/2 tablespoon and then add more if desired.
