Begin by cooking the lentils.  Place 4 cups of cold water in a glass cooking pot and bring to a boil.  Wash and clean the lentils in a strainer under running water.  When the water begins to boil, add the lentils and simmer on low heat until all the water is absorbed.

In another covered glass cooking pot prepare the brown basmati rice.  For this size recipe, we would suggest preparing 3 cups of brown basmati rice in 6 cups of water.

While the lentils and rice are cooking, wash and peel the onion and garlic.  Dice the onion and crush the garlic and place in a large covered microwaveable or oven safe baking dish.  If cooking in a microwave, cook at "high."  If cooking in a conventional oven, cook at 350 degrees F.  When the onions begin to get translucent, remove from the heat and set aside.

Wash and peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 3/8 to 1/2 inch cubes. and add to the baking dish. 

Wash and chop the collard greens, or use frozen chopped collard greens.  Add to the baking dish.

Add all the other ingredients and mix well.  Place the covered baking dish back in the oven and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender. 

When the sweet potatoes are cooked, add the lentils and mix well. Place back in the oven for another 15 minutes.  Mix about midway through this last cooking process.  If the ingredients become very stiff, add a little apple juice or water.  Do not let it get "runny."

When the collard greens, sweet potato and lentil curry is finished cooking, remove from the heat and serve on a bed of basmati rice.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-15)
