Sweet Potato Lentil Coconut Soup [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
This soup is Thai-inspired due to the use of bold flavors like lemongrass, lime juice, coconut, and chili flakes. Pureed lentils make the soup extra thick and creamy as well as give it a double dose of protein. If you want, you also have the option to make croutons by tearing up a day-old baguette into pieces, seasoning them with olive oil and herbs, and baking in the oven until nice and crunchy.
