I’ve made a variety of curried lentil and sweet potato recipes. Most of time I don’t have all the called-for ingredients, so this recipe is what I usually make with what is on hand. There are probably tastier recipes out there, but this one is simple. This is another super healthy recipe – lentils are great for you!
