INSTRUCTIONS

1
Simmer the potato and lentils

Add sweet potato to a small saucepan, cover with 1 inch water, and bring to a boil. Cook until potato is fork-tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain and return cooked sweet potato to the saucepan, off heat. Add beluga lentils to a separate saucepan with 1 cup water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until lentils are tender, 20 to 24 minutes. TIP: To “sort” (as indicated in the ingredients list) means to look for and discard any naturally occurring debris or stones.

2
Make the relish

Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add minced Fresno chile, just 1 tsp ginger, raisins, toasted coconut, mustard seeds, and turmeric. Cook until fragrant, 1 to 3 minutes. Add lemon juice and transfer the coconut turmeric relish to a medium bowl. TIPS: Add more Fresno chile if you prefer more heat, and save any remaining chile for your own use. We will use this skillet again in the next step.

3
Sear the broccolini

Wipe the skillet clean and return to medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt. Add broccolini, cover skillet with a lid, and cook until water evaporates and broccolini is tender and crispy in places, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip broccolini and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

4
Serve

Add butter to the cooked sweet potatoes and mash with a fork. Taste and add salt as needed. Divide the mashed sweet potatoes and beluga lentils between large plates. Top with pan seared broccolini and coconut turmeric relish. Tuck in!
