Ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 4 leeks (white and light green parts), cut into 1/4-inch-thick half-moons
  3. 1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, drained
  4. 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  5. 1 bunch kale, thick stems removed and leaves cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips
  6. 1/2 cup brown lentils
  7. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  8. Kosher salt and black pepper
  9. 1/4 cup Vegan grated Parmesan
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook, breaking them up with a spoon, for 5 minutes.
  2. Add 6 cups water and bring to a boil. Stir in the sweet potatoes, kale, lentils, thyme, 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Simmer until the lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Spoon into bowls and top with the Parmesan
