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! Using a strainer, drain and rinse lentils. Peel, then cut sweet potato into 1/2-inch cubes. Peel, then finely mince or grate garlic. Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
Add sweet potatoes and 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to an unlined 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.
While sweet potatoes roast, add feta, sour cream, half the garlic, half the lemon zest, 1/2 tbsp lemon juice and 1/2 tbsp water (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a small bowl. (NOTE: Reference garlic guide.) Using a fork, mash until almost smooth.
Heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. While the pan heats, pat salmon dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then salmon, skin-side down. Cook until skin is crispy, 4-5 min. Flip and cook until salmon is opaque and cooked through, 2-3 min.** Remove and discard skin, if desired. Using a fork, break up salmon into bite-sized pieces.
While salmon cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Add lentils and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring often, until lentils are warmed through, 2-3 min. Remove the pan from heat. Drizzle 1/2 tbsp lemon juice (dbl for 4 ppl) and sprinkle remaining lemon zest over the pan. Add spinach, then stir until gently wilted. Season with pepper, to taste.
Divide lentils between bowls. Top with sweet potatoes and salmon, then drizzle feta crema over top. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
