Sort out lentils and discard any unwanted material. Rinse lentils and place in a large slow cooker (crock-pot) with cover or cooking pot on stovetop. Set the heat control to "high". Add approximately 6 cups water. (To reduce cooking time, we heat water in microwave before adding to crock-pot.) Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon curry powder to slow cooker or cooking pot.  Cook until the red lentils soften and begin to fall apart.  Then...

Peel and cut in pieces the sweet potatoes and carrots. Place in microwaveable dish with cover. Peel, wash and cut onion and add to dish, along with peeled and washed garlic cloves. Cook covered in microwave oven until vegetables are softened.

Transfer softened, cooked vegetables to blender, add � cup raisins, and run blender on �high� until contents are creamy. Add mixture to lentils in the slow cooker and continue to cook on �high� setting until lentils are tender. Add more hot water as needed for desired consistency.

Serve with a large tossed salad and enjoy!

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!
