Preheat your oven to 200C/180Fan
Rinse your lentils and then put them in a saucepan with plenty of water, bring to the boil and then simmer for about 35 minutes or until tender. Drain and rinse under the cold tap.
Meanwhile place your sweet potatoes in a baking tray with the oil, cumin seeds and paprika and roast in a hot oven at 200C for 20 - 30 minutes until soft. Allow to cool.
