The Purple Dog Vegan's Citrus Sweet Potatoes

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 1/3 cup peanuts (chopped)
  • 1/2 of a large orange (or 1 whole small orange, peeled and sliced, each slice cut into thirds)
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoon ground red pepper/cayenne
  • OPTIONAL: cilantro (roughly chopped)

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Roast potatoes at 350 degrees in an oven until tender (leave oven on after cooking)
  • Cook lentils until they reach the tenderness you desire
  • Cut the potatoes in half, spoon lentils over halves, place back in oven for 3-4 minutes
  • While potatoes are heating, roast peanuts over medium heat (oil optional, I've found peanuts usually have enough of their own oils to roast)
  • Take potatoes out of oven and immediately plate them, season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Sprinkle peanuts, orange pieces, and lime juice over potatoes then followed by red pepper and cilantro (if using)

NOTES

  • I like this recipe because it has a little bit of everything: the vitamins and fiber of the sweet potato, the protein in the lentils, a little bit of tartness from the orange pieces, a small touch of heat from the pepper, and the added freshness of the lime and cilantro.
