Posthumous Promotion Curried Lentils

On January 17, 2001, President Bill Clinton posthumously promoted Meriwether Lewis from Lieutenant to Captain. I don't know why that was necessary. Don't worry, he also posthumously promoted William Clark, who was thereby spared rolling over in his grave. Seriously, though, posthumous military promotions? Waste of time.

Today is a sad day. Someday I will have fewer of those, maybe.

servers: 3-4
prep. time: approx. 30 min.

1 c. red lentils
1 yellow onion, sliced
1 sweet potato, chopped
6 kale leaves, torn
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
~3 c. water
curry powder
Bragg's liquid aminos
nutritional yeast

1. Saute the onion in a pot in coconut oil over medium-high heat. After it goes translucent, toss everything in and keep it at a low boil or aggressive simmer until the red lentils start to break down.
2. Stir vigorously. I ate it by itself because I forgot to put on some orzo and didn't want to wait for rice.
