  • 3 cups low sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cups lentils, rinsed
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup low salt chicken broth, or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon tamari soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced zucchini
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets


  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, combine lentils with 3 cups of broth (or water) and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until lentils are barely tender (about 20 to 30 minutes). Add sweet potatoes, onion, celery, garlic, water, tamari and spices and cook for about 40 minutes on medium heat. Add zucchini and broccoli florets, cover, and continue to heat another 10 minutes.
