There are a few easy modifications that can be done with this dish. If the vegetable broth is used it is vegan as well as gluten & dairy free. But if you want it to be whole30 or paleo approved remove the peas or lentils, you can also use butternut squash in place of sweet potato if you have that on hand. Great additions are celery, carrots, zucchini, or any other veggie, ham or chicken would make a good protein addition.
