On my blog, there are few posts on salads and soups and many for desserts, that should tell you something. I guess it’s time I change that. I am taking baby steps and that’s why I’m sharing a Lentil Potato Creamy Soup recipe with you today.

Making Lentil Potato Creamy Soup.

I make different types of soups in Ramadan, it’s the month when all Muslims fast. Breaking the fast with soup helps the stomach to regain its size since fasting for a long time makes it shrink.

This lentil potato creamy soup has a special place because it’s creamy, can fill you up nicely, and it tastes really good. If you are trying to lose weight, this soup is ideal for you. The craving for food will be gone for a long time when you have this soup.

The other reason why I like to make this soup is time. Preparing and cooking this soup hardly takes time, but the outcome is an explosion of flavor. In this recipe, I used chicken stock, but you can use beef or even vegetable stock.

You can make this lentil potato creamy soup richer by adding sour cream before serving. Do not add sour cream or cream and boil the soup again, it will not taste that good and the texture won’t be as creamy.

  1. So very creamy and smooth…I love it. I have soup every day, but usually without potatoes…I am sure it will work beautifully with sweet potatoes too.
