Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup

I created this simply, low fat soup recipe for a family member who was recently diagnosed with pancreatitis so needs to watch their fat consumption. I made sure it was packed with nutritional ingredients while being filling and a good source of protein. This is the perfect low-fat warming meal for anyone and perfect served with warm, fresh bread.


  • 800g sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • olive oil spray
  • 1 onion (replace with 3 tbsp fresh chives for low fodmap)
  • 1 garlic clove (avoid if low fodmap)
  • 1 vegetable stock pot
  • 800ml water
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
