This is one of those dishes that just came together by accident. I was planning on simply roasting the sweet potato and steaming the green beans. Super simple and not very inspiring, I know. Then I remembered THIS stir-fried sesame asparagus that I have made before. It’s a delicious mix of salty and sweet and the sesame seeds add a nice crunch. This recipe is a variation on that one. I added a bit of heat and bit of bitter vinegar to better balance the flavors. The result is a delicious and much more interesting side!
When I have a really busy schedule, I make a giant pot of soup that I can then reheat during the week for a quick and healthy meal. This is one of those soups. I love the combination of the sweetness from the sweet potatoes and the earthiness of the lentils. By adding in some greens, I have a super nutritious, hearty, one-pot meal. I’m always looking for new soup ideas. Out of curiosity, what’s your favorite soup recipe?
