Sweet Potato + Kale Masoor Dal

After being gone for a week and not eating very many hot meals, I can appreciate how comforting one can be. One week might not sound like much but a lot can happen in that time. When you're camping in cities that are unfamiliar to you and everyone you're with wants Indian food, that's no where to be found, this vegan feast happens. 

Last night I opened up my home to the public for a free vegan dinner. I cooked so much food, enough to feed an army (of peaceful vegans) and spent a whopping $22. I've decided that this will be a regular occurrence. Once a month I will open my doors to anyone who needs a hot meal.

So if you're ever in the City of Trees...

FYI: instead of 1 large sweet potato I used 1 ex small yam and 1 ex small sweet potato

1 c red lentils
2 c vegetable broth
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 cinnamon stick
1 large sweet potato, cubed
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 bunch kale, finely chopped
  1. Combine all the ingredients except the sweet potato and kale in a pot and get it simmering for about 10 minutes or so. 
  2. Add in your potatoes and simmer until tender; 12 minutes, or so. 
  3. While that's simmering, saute up your finely chopped kale in the oil. When everything is tender in your big pot and your kale is bright green, combine everything and eat the shit out of it.
