1. 1 sweet potato
2. 1 cup of cooked lentils
3. 1 bunch of parsley
4. Hummus (either store bought or my recipe)

6. Salt, black pepper, garlic powder, red pepper
1. First, preheat your oven to 375.
2. Next, grab a sweet potato, wash, and peel.
3. Next, cut it vertically so that you make slices of “toast”.
4. Next, grab a baking pan and add your slices of sweet potato.
5. Drizzle on 1-1/2 TBSPs of olive oil and coat the sweet potato slices evenly.
6. Next, season with your preferred amount of salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Coat evenly.
7. Bake in the oven until you can easily poke a hole through the sweet potato. It will need at least 15 minutes.
8. As you are waiting on the sweet potato, make sure your lentils are cooked, your hummus is ready, and your parsley is chopped.
9. Once the sweet potato slices are done, start layering. First, coat with hummus, top with lentils & parsley, sprinkle on salt, black pepper, a dash of red pepper, and drizzle on olive oil. 10. Enjoy!
