Red Lentil and Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

At first, I thought that soup and Baby Led Weaning sounded like a bad combination, but it's actually great. BB soon learned to dip his bread in the soup. It actually makes less mess than many meals we have tried. I also add a little baby pasta to left over soup for occasions when we will be eating out in places that are not so tolerant about mess. He is happy to be spoon fed this 'mixture' and eat it alongside 'clean' foods, like cucumber sticks.
