Rinse Lentils Rinse lentils with water in a colander. Add lentils to saucepan with 3 cups chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for an additional 20 minutes, until tender.
Mix Ingredients Drain lentils in colander and add to a bowl. Mix in 1 Tbsp olive oil, chopped herbs, green onion and salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
Let Cool When the potatoes have finished baking, remove from oven. When cool enough to handle, cut each potato in half, lengthwise, and scoop out filling into a bowl, leaving enough filling so the peel can stand on its own. Mash the sweet potato filling, then stir in half of the goat cheese and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Fill and Bake Fill each potato skin with goat cheese filling and top with herbed lentils. Place on a baking sheet and bake until warmed throughout, an additional 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and top with additional goat cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!
