Lazy Cow – Sweet Potatoes & Lentils


1 tablespoon coconut oil
1  onion
½ 1 teaspoon dried chili flakes
½ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon ground turmeric
2-inch piece fresh ginger
3 garlic cloves
sea salt and ground black pepper
1 ½ lbs  sweet potatoes
200 gsm lentils
250 ml vegetable stock
400 ml coconut milk
1 small bunch of kale




Heat a large, heavy-bottomed soup pot over medium heat

Add the coconut oil to the pot and let it melt

Add the onions to the pot and stir

Saute the onions, stirring occasionally, until translucent & soft, about 5 minutes

Add the chilli flakes, coriander, cumin, and turmeric

Saute spices until very fragrant, about 1 minute

Add the ginger and garlic and cook for another minute

Add a pinch of S&P

Add the sweet potatoes & stir to coat in the spices

Add the lentils & stir once more

Season liberally with S&P

Add the vegetable stock and stir

Place the lid on top of the pot and bring to a boil

Once the stew is boiling, lower the heat to a simmer and set the lid slightly askew on top of the pot so that there’s a couple inches available for steam to escape

Simmer until the sweet potatoes are almost falling apart and the lentils are tender, about 30 minutes

The liquid should also be reduced by almost a third

Add the coconut milk and kale to the pot and stir

Place the lid on top and continue to simmer the stew until the kale is wilted and bright green, about 3-4 minutes

Season the sweet potato and coconut milk stew again with S&P

Bring the stew back up to a strong simmer and check for seasoning

Adjust with more S&P chilli if you want
