Let’s Get Started


  • To cook the lentils place them into a sauce pan with equal parts water (2/3 cup) and a few pinches of salt. Bring this to a boil and once at a strong boil reduce heat to low and cover the sauce pan. Let the lentils cook for 15 minutes. Once cooked fluff lightly with a fork and place into the bowl with the remaining ingredients for the dish.
  • Steam or bake the yam/sweet potato. Once cooked carefully remove the skin and cut into small cubes.
  • For the Pero Family Farms French Beans steam the vegetable according to the directions on the bag. Once steamed carefully remove the French Beans from the bag and place into a bowl.
  • Remove the ends of the brussels sprouts and thinly slice them. Add the thinly sliced brussels sprouts into the bowl with French Beans, lentils, and cubed yam/sweet potato. Toss everything together with salt and pepper.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the Balsamic Soy Dressing. Pour this dressing into the bowl and gently toss the dish together.
  • Serve warm or room temperate.
