Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add potatoes and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil 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 and golden-brown, 23-25 min.
Meanwhile, peel, then mince or grate garlic. Roughly chop spinach.Halve ciabatta, then arrange on another unlined baking sheet, cut-side up.

Add lentils, including liquid, broth concentrate, half the Zesty Garlic Spice Blend and 1 1/3 cups (2 2/3 cups) water. Bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium.
