For the Lentil Hash:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, diced
  • 1 medium sweet potato, diced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups split red lentils, dried
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 - 4 cups vegetable broth, depending on how tender you want the lentils

For the Garlic Sauteed Kale:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups chopped kale
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

For Toppings:

  • 2 fried eggs
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the sweet potato and shallot and sauté for 4-6 minutes. Add the garlic, sea salt, cumin, and paprika, and sauté for 2-3 more minutes.
  3. Add the lentils, tomato paste, and broth. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the lentils and sweet potato are tender, about 25-30 minutes. You may need to add the additional broth as the lentils absorb the liquid.

  4. To make the kale, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a skillet.

  5. Add the kale and sauté until softened. Add the garlic and stir for another minute.
  6. Top with fried egg, if desired.
