Lentil Sweet Potato Apple Soup

I thought this soup was pretty good. I think Toby liked it, until I told him that two of his least favorite foods were in there (carrots and sweet potatoes). This soup took me about an hour or so to make. You just have to taste along the way, and make sure everything is cooking (especially the lentils!). I did add another 2 cups of veggie broth near the end. This soup is vegan and seems really healthy. I can’t wait to eat it for lunch!
