– Sweet Potato – Red Split Lentils – Vegetable Broth – Paprika – Panko Bread Crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Pierce sweet potato with a fork and bake in oven for about 45-50 min.

While the sweet potato is cooking, add the lentils to a saucepan, cover with the broth, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until all liquid is almost absorbed.

Add the cooked lentils to the bowl with the sweet potato, along with the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, panko bread crumbs and salt (optional) and combine mixture with hands or a spoon.

Form mixture into approximately 18 small croquettes that are about 2-inches long and 1-inch thick and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Bake in the oven at 400 degrees F for approximately 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through. They should be slightly crispy on the outside and lightly golden.
