Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss chopped sweet potato with olive oil and seasonings. Lay out in an even layer on a baking sheet. Roast for 20-25 minutes, or until soft and lightly browned, stirring once halfway through. Set aside.
Heat oil for the stew in a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Add in the shallot and saute until soft, about 3 minutes. Add in the garlic, chipotle chile, & cumin and saute for 30 seconds.
Pour in the broth and stir in the lentils. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the roasted sweet potato. Cook an additional 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt.
Serve hot topped with Greek yogurt and bread, if desired.
