  • 3 fresh tomatoes, peeled and cut in small chunks
  • 3 cloves fresh garlic chopped
  • 1/2 large red onion chopped
  • 3 tbsps. fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (or more to taste)

  4. Keep on low heat and add onions, garlic, parsley, celery and seasonings.
  5. Add tomatoes and sweet potatoes.
  6. Cook for another 15 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender.

You can substitute red peas or lentils. Lentils take much less time to cook. Also, use less lentils - about a cup or cup and a half.
