Sweet Potatoes Lentils Sage


We are still in the process of cooking out of our pantry and I had a lot of green lentils to use up.  Since I have a delicious soup on my blog with sweet potatoes and green lentils, I knew these flavors would go great in a skillet dish too.



We kept it simple for this recipe with a very small ingredient list.  However, I think adding some spinach would have went great as well.  This healthy dish is vegan and gluten free.

  1. Hi! What's your suggestions on cooking lentils? I've seen lots of places where they say you need to leave them in water for hours and others where they just tell you to use them dry directly to the pan.
    1. Hi Ana! I cook them like rice. 1 part lentis, 2 parts water. Bring to a boil, then cover, turn down and simmer until all the water is absorbed,
  2. Sage is the Perfect edition to these flavours, I sort of make this recipe into more of a casserole by blending/ mashing the sweet potatoes and baking them on top! Such a wonderful recipe, kids loved it
