Summer Ragout

I love making things like this because they're so versatile. I can add whatever I have in the kitchen and any blend of spices. Ragout (even though it's French) is a very rustic dish consisting of different kinds of veggies that cook over a low heat and can be heavily or lightly seasoned. This a something that can be done very quickly with no hassle and reap tons of flavor.

Summer Ragout

- 1 small sweet potato, skinned and cubed
- 1/2 sweet onion, sliced
- 1 zucchini, sliced thinly
- 1/2 c tomato, diced
- 1/2 c black lentils
- 1 tsp EVOO
- cumin and curry powder to taste

In a saucepan over medium low heat add EVOO and then onion and zucchini. Let cook until tender then add tomato and lentils. While that cooks, place sweet potato in a microwavable bowl and cover with a paper towel. Microwave for 3-4 minutes. When sweet potato is finished add it to the other veggies and season. Enjoy!
