Sweet Potato Lentil Casserole

It’s almost the New Year! Some of my resolutions include…

  • Washing my face regularly (okay, I know that’s lame, but I have a ton of nice facial products I always forget to use)
  • Getting serious about saving up money for our down payment on a house
  • Posting to Sweet Little Kitchen at least 3 times a week from now through the end of May (and then reevaluating)

Like the Roasted Broccoli with Aromatic Brown Rice I posted earlier this week, this is another great vegan dish brimming with vegetables – something especially great after lots of holiday treats. I like to serve it over a long-grain white rice and garnish it with almond slivers. On busy nights, you can mix everything up ahead of time, stick the casserole dish in the fridge, and pop it in the oven when you’re ready for dinner.
