If you woke up to snow this morning, I feel your pain!

That is a tough pill to swallow.

IMG_9923

IMG_9925

If you squint your eyes really small, you can see the beach and sunshine. I’m lounging with a margarita off in the distance! Cool, huh?

IMG_9949

And because I’m apparently a 90 year old lady, I slipped on the driveway this morning while shoveling and bruised my tailbone! I’m sitting here with a big bag of ice on my bum, sipping hot tea in front of the space heater.

If you think about it, I’m pretty much in Florida right now. And I think I would fit right in with the elderly and their dog strollers.

I’ve always wanted a Cadillac.

The great thing about this recipe is that you could pretty much clean out your fridge and use whatever you have and it would still turn out. :) I didn’t have any green beans or apple as in Kath’s recipe, so I just used what I had. Be sure to check out her recipe too!

I came up with 1 orange pepper, 1.25 sweet potato, 1 onion, 2 cloves garlic, couple handfuls spinach.

The dressing ingredients: EVOO, pure maple syrup, Dijon mustard, black pepper, balsamic vinegar, S + P.

IMG_3113

My version included onion! ;)

IMG_3114

Get your sauté on.

IMG_3119

Add in the cooked lentils.

IMG_3120 IMG_3122

And in the roasted sweet potatoes.

IMG_3125

And mix everything in!

IMG_3133

Despite the frightful weather we are experiencing, this really is a lovely dish for Spring!

Light, fresh, and energizing!

IMG_3152

I’m also rocking a new bowl of Vegan Overnight Oats this week.

Delicious! Cookie dough and doughy oats are a match made in heaven.

According to this mug, I should book a tropical vacation today… ;)

Yum! I love sweet potato and lentil salad recipe. That looks delicious! I always worry that my sweet potatoes are too mushy and wouldn’t hold up to a salad. I’ll have to try it sometime and get over my fear. :)

Yum! I just posted about a lentil salad that I made with artichoke hearts….sweet potatoes would be a delicious addition!

I, along with many other Canadians, am sick of the snow. Officially. I very rarely complain about winter, (after all, I am in AB) but this is getting ridiculous! I am on the countdown for a Mexican vacation (7 sleeps!) and seeing as how I am solar powered, I am hoping to recharge my batteries :)

The salad looks great, will be trying it for sure!!!!

Hope you feel better later!

Gahh, slipping on the snow/ice is never fun! It is even worse when someone sees you and you have to act like it was no big deal, no matter how much pain you’re in! Haha
Lentils + Sweet potatoes are among my favorite ingredients, I will definitely be trying this recipe out once I am home from school and have a place to cook in! Thanks for the recipe :)

I live in Rochester, and pretty much follow the same weather pattern that you get in Toronto! I was willing to accept it early this morning, but only if it stopped at a light dusting….but it looks like its gonna keep going!!! Argg lake effect snow!! Oh well, it will only make us appreciate the warmer weather more!

I woke up to snow as well, though I’m on the West Coast of the US– meaning it will probably melt in a couple of days! It was seriously 70 degrees last week.
I love the coffee mug– where’d you get it?
I slipped on ice last year and ended up giving myself a concussion! It was a pretty painful sight– I actually tried to make it through my classes at university before trekking up to the student medical center. I was seeing stars!
This recipe looks delish! I hope you feel better soon– maybe the sun will come out for ya!

Reply

18 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 23, 2011

I’ve had a concussion from slipping on the road too…and nearly got hit by a car! It is never fun to fall.

The mug is from Indigo book store. The mug is actually by a company called ‘Quotable mugs’ Their website is here: http://www.quotablecards.com

I hate it– I never suffered from migraines before that fall! The doc told me then that it was minor, no harm really done, but my balance is still off, and get headaches a lot more:( No fun! Thanks for the website info!

20 Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete March 23, 2011

Yes I woke up to snow :( I was not excited to drive to work this morning — hopefully the commute home isn’t too bad — I am such a nervous driver as is, throw snow in the mix and I’m a ball of nerves!

Angela the sweet potato salad looks delicious — and so do the Cookie Dough VOO!!! Those cookie dough bites look incredible.

Sorry about your bum! True story, I broke mine while trying to kick my leg over the top of a shopping cart handle…and falling hard on the grocery store cement floor. (I know, I was a brilliant 13 year old…ha) And now, my tailbone is crooked. All that to say — tailbone hurt, I feel your pain, and hope it feels better soon! :)

Lovely lentil and sweet potato blend! And would you look at that, we have some leftover lentils…hmm…

Reply

27 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 23, 2011

ouch!!! That sounds painful. Did you have to get physical therapy for it?

Reply

28 Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing March 23, 2011

It hurt, but not like breaking most bones would. Just sore. No physical therapy or anything; in fact, at first they told me it was just bruised! Once it “healed” crooked, I was pretty sure they were wrong ;) Apparently because your coccyx is a series of tiny vertebrae, if it breaks, they fuse together. And thus it’s easier for it to become crooked. So weird. But now I have a random fun fact about myself, I suppose? ;) Hope you’re feeling better soon!

Ugh, I feel your pain! Monday- flip flops, Today- snow. Sorry to hear about your tailbone :(

I just recently bought dried lentils and I’ve been looking for a recipe- I’ve been eating them with a little lemon juice, EVOO, avocado and cilantro…a bit bland. I’ll have to try out your recipe!!

Torture (noun) — the sensation Ange must have experienced while comparing her two photo collages.

Comfort (noun) — the realization that at least you can still have good food, no matter the environs.

P.S. If you make your banana soft-serve with rum (instead of almond milk), that is also comforting. I mean, it comforted me when I was thinking back to my last excursion to the beach.

42 Baking 'n' Books March 23, 2011

I heard CA was going a lot of wet weather.

I’ve often wondered if I’d rather have snow or rain – thought about moving out West to B.C or something….rain seems better than scraping shovels of snow off your car and the cold…but it can also be depressing?

Hmm. Win-Lose either way :)

Yup, snowing (very lightly) in New York too. Good news for you is how adorable you look in yoru snow-gear! That recipe seems like a nice season-transition dish; the orange sweet potato and maple syrup remind me of fall/winter while the bright spinach gives me hope for the emergence of fresh greens!

I think lentils and sweet potatoes are destined to be together! The spinach takes it over the top. Anxious to try this recipe!

Yikes! I hope your tailbone feels better, I hurt mine once via an awesome skiing wipeout… It felt like it took forever to heal!

And those oats… YUM. Anything with cookie dough looks amazing to me.

I just put in a pot of lentils in the crockpot overnight. I accidentally made more than I could handle, so I decided to check your site for some recipes. Lo and behold, the perfect recipe was right on the front page. What a crazy coincidence. Will probably use up my last batch of sweet potatoes and broccoli instead of spinach. Cannot wait to make it!

HI Angela,
I really enjoy your blog. Props to you and all you’ve accomplished! You really seem like a positive person and do a great job of passing that positivity on to others. Here is my question for you. I’m just wondering if you have any specific advice for a girl in her, yikes! kind of later 20’s trying to gain weight. I know I am underweight, I don’t really count calories in order to restrict them or weigh myself. I just try to eat healthy (pretty much all whole plant based foods, rarely meat though not vegan and I love some kind of dessert every night) and I practice yoga 3-4 times a week. Plus having moved to NY not long ago I walk everywhere now. If I’m running late it turns into a pretty good workout:) Anyway, the whole combo has put me below where I need to be pound-wise and I’m having trouble adding the calories I guess. Food routines are hard to break it seems. Any ideas? If you find some time to respond i”d be very appreciative.

Sorry about all your snow! We have rain here, yuck! If only we could all be in Florida right now! Thanks

But the cookie dough balls is really where it’s at. I mean, how can lentils really compete with cookie dough? :)

I had chocolate chips in my overnight oats the other day and it made me so happy but chocolate chip cookie dough balls would be even better:)

I know you’re ready for all of the snow to be gone and for spring to arrive! But for all of us Southerners… Spring is in full force with high’s in the 80s already — this means a few things… yes, days are beautiful down here but a. pollen season is already in full force and all of cars are beginning to have a yellowish/green tint and b. hurricane season is going to be a scary one this year!

Stay warm. I’m thinking about you Northerners :)

Aw, poor Ange! No snow here in Kansas, yet, but I’m afraid it’s heading for us. :( This salad looks amazing and is on my “to try” list. I love sweet potatoes and I’m trying to get my hubby to like them too. So far, the only way he’s almost liked them is in beef stew. We’ll see if I can get him to eat them in a vegan dish. I love that purple triangular bowl you have your oats in!!

I *finally* jumped on the VOO bandwagon! I only wish I had done it sooner. So. Good.
I’ve been craving your vegan cookie dough blizzard ever since you posted it, and now I have an even better excuse to get to it! Leftover dough for VOO!!! So excited :)

Stay warm!

I love the Sweet Potato dish! I made it for dinner tonight! I made the dressing, but forgot to add it, but it tasted so good without it, so much flavor with the onions and peppers. I didn’t have the lentils so I used a Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Medley (cooked in veggie broth) and followed your directions exact and let me tell you it was so tasty with the rice. I am bringing some to work tomorrow to share with my co-workers.

Thanks for inspiring my dinner last night! No sweet potatoes, but I made do. I used quinoa instead of lentils because I didn’t have any and used fresh green beans and some leftover corn with the onion and garlic. I also added a can of small white beans to add some protein. That dressing is delicious! :-)

I made this for dinner tonight. College student style: microwaved the sweet potato, water cooked garlic and onion (I don’t have olive oil), and subbed apple cider vinegar for the balsamic vinegar–this is one of my new favorite dishes! I am looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! A great straight forward recipe, and über delicious!
Thanks for sharing! :))

I made this using some leftover black eyed peas with green bean snaps. Didn’t even add the spinach or pepper because I didn’t have that, and dish was absolutely delicious. It’s the dressing, I think, that makes this recipe so good. Will definitely make again, with or without whatever is left over in the fridge! Thanks for another great recipe.
