Katelyn introduced me to this recipe for curried sweet potato and lentil soup at a recent yoga training class at Just Breathe Yoga Studio in Mandeville, Louisiana.  She counsels clients individually, and holds monthly workshops at Just Breathe Yoga. Katelyn Sonnier expresses her love for Ayurveda by creating seasonal recipes that will nourish and balance. She is also a yoga instructor and shares her wisdom and quest for mind-body balance through her yoga and Ayurvedic practice.

Katelyn Sonnier is an Ayurvedic Wellness Consultant, and a beautiful and wise soul, who works with those interested in a better way of being- through food, lifestyle, and an understanding of their unique mind-body type.

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word that simply translates to “wisdom of life”. It teaches you how to live in tune with your body and your environment. Katelyn’s instagram will remind you of your intuitive wisdom, so you can heal your body, mind, and soul.

Katelyn primarily creates her own recipes based on the seasons and doshas. Changes in season affect our digestion and Ayurveda considers these changes and shows us how to balance our diets.

Katelyn also introduced me to the “Eat, Feel Fresh” by Sahara Rose cookbook which has recipes that help us to understand the power of food for healing. Eating according to the seasons and your dosha is a lifestyle and is not just about recipes. It is also about bringing your body into balance.

Katelyn’s curried sweet potato and lentil soup is both sweet and spicy. The coconut milk adds a gentle sweetness to the soup and the curry powder adds a spicy kick. I used fresh ginger and some minced onion. Katelyn’s version uses powdered ginger and no onions.

I sautéed the onion in ghee. For a vegan version, sauté the onions in avocado oil or vegetable oil of your choice. You can prepare this one pot hearty winter meal in about 15 minutes. Allow the soup to simmer until the lentils and the sweet potatoes are tender. The kale is added at the end and allowed to mingle with the other ingredients for at least 10 minutes or until wilted.

You will love the creamy richness of this comforting Curried Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup. Life in balance, thanks to Katelyn.
