Lentil & sweet potato bowl

by Leah Vanderveldt


Serves 3-4 | Prep 20 mins | Cook 30 mins | Calories 633 (per serving)

190g (3¼oz) dry puy lentils

1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 2.5cm (1in) cubes

2 tbsp olive oil a bunch of kale, stems removed, roughly chopped

140g (5oz) toasted walnuts, roughly chopped, to serve salt and freshly ground black pepper


15g (½oz) fresh parsley

15g (½oz) fresh coriander

2 tbsp finely chopped shallots

75ml (2¾oz) olive oil freshly squeezed juice of ½ a lemon

1 tsp CBD oil (a nonflavoured oil-based tincture of CBD is recommended) sea salt

• Readers are urged to consult a relevant and qualified specialist or physician for individual advice before taking CBD in conjunction with any other medical conditions, medication or if pregnant or breastfeeding.

1 Preheat the oven to 190ºC/Gas Mark 5. In a saucepan, combine the lentils with 950ml (1½pt) water and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to the boil over a medium-high heat. Once boiling, turn the heat down and simmer, covered, for 25-30 minute until the lentils are just tender. Drain and set aside.

2 Meanwhile, toss the sweet potato cubes with 1 tbsp olive oil and a large pinch of salt in a bowl. Spread on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 30 minutes, until golden and tender. In another large bowl, combine the kale, the remaining olive oil and some salt and pepper. Use your hands to rub the olive oil into the kale, making sure the kale is well covered. Massage the kale for 20-30 seconds. This helps to break the leaves down, making them more tender. Set aside.

3 Make the chimichurri by combining all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and processing until the herbs are finely chopped and the ingredients are evenly combined.

4 Toss a spoonful or two of the dressing into the cooked lentils and let sit until you’re ready to serve.

5 Divide the kale between bowls and top each with lentils and sweet potato. Spoon over some chimichurri and top each bowl with toasted walnuts.
