Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce.Garlic Guide for Step 3 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/4 tsp mild, 1/2 tsp medium and 1 tsp extra! Drain and rinse lentils in a strainer. Peel, then cut sweet potato into 1/2-inch cubes. Peel, then finely mince or grate garlic. Zest lemon. Juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
Add sweet potatoes and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Roast in the middle of the oven, flipping halfway through, until tender, 16-18 min.
