Ingredients:  
1 1/2 cups red lentils or yellow split peas
4 or 5 cups hot water
1 onion, chopped (about 1 c.)
3 T. vegetable oil or ghee (clarified butter)
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (about 4 cups)
1 T. mild curry powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
2T. grated fresh ginger root
2 c. water
1/2 head cauliflower (about 4 cups florets)
2 red bell peppers, chopped (about 2 cups)
10 ounces fresh spinach
2-3 T. fresh lemon juice
salt to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Rinse the lentils or split peas. Lentils cook faster and absorb less water than split peas, so use 4 cups of water for lentils, 5 cups of water for split peas. In a covered saucepan, bring the water and lentils or peas to a boil. Reduce the heat, uncover, and simmer for about 30 minutes until tender.
In a large soup pot, saute the onion and chile in the oil for several minutes. Add the sweet potatoes, curry powder, cumin, and ginger and continue to saute for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring often. Pour in the 2 cups of water. Cut the cauliflower into florets and add to the pot. Add the bell peppers, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
While the veggies simmer, rinse, stem and coarsley chop the spinach. Pour the lentils or peas and their cooking liquid into a blender or food processor, and puree for 2 to 3 minutes to make a smooth dahl. When the cauliflower is tender, stir in the spinach, the dahl, and the lemon juice. Simmer just until the spinach has wilted. Add salt to taste, and serve immediately.

This is a great recipe from the Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home cookbook. It has a gorgeous color when you use red or orange lentils and red bell peppers.
