Creamy Vegan Ethiopian Lentils by Anetta

Savory sweet potato, tender lentils, and fresh spinach are simmered in a Berbere-spiced coconut milk broth. This is one of my all-time favorites for cold weather and lazy weekends. I love to save the leftovers in mason jars for easy lunches during the week!
