Prepare yourself for a flavor journey! In a shallow saucepan, sauté those chopped onions with a tablespoon of olive oil for about 2 minutes. Can you smell the goodness already?
It's time to introduce the sweet potatoes to the party! Add the sweet potato cubes to the sautéed onions and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Keep stirring; we want those sweet potatoes to get cozy with the onions.
Pour in 1/2 cup of chicken or vegetable broth and let it all come to a lively boil for 5 minutes. The sweet potatoes are going to soak up that savory goodness and become tender.
Now, bring in the cooked lentils to the mix. Let them join the party and heat through. We're creating a wholesome harmony of flavors and textures.
Finish off with a touch of elegance – drizzle 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey over your Lentils with Sweet Potatoes. It's the perfect blend of sweet and tangy.
Your Lentils with Sweet Potatoes are now ready to impress your taste buds. Serve it up as a hearty vegetarian meal with a side salad or as a delicious accompaniment to your favorite protein like salmon or chicken.
