This recipe is heartwarming, fulfilling, really nutritious, healthy, it tastes delicious, I love the mushrooms with the lentils.

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos sauce

  1. Start by removing the skin of the sweet potatoes, wash them well and cut them into cubes.
  2. Boil the sweet potatoes until soft.
  3. Whilst the sweet potatoes are boiling, preheat the oven to 250ºC (482°F)
  4. Wash the mushrooms and cut them into small pieces, chop the garlic cloves, then place the mushrooms and garlic onto an oven tray. Add the coconut aminos, salt, pepper and a teaspoon of ginger powder. Coat well and cook them in the oven for around 20 minutes.
  5. Wash the tomatoes, cut them into halves, add a tablespoon of olive oil and roast them in the oven for around 20 minutes.
