Curried Crockpot Dhal with Sweet Potato

What you need: 

1 pound dried split peas
1 green pepper, diced
1 medium sweet potato, grated
6 cups unsalted vegetable stock
1 bay leaf
1-2 chipotles, sliced
1 pinch anise seed
curry powder, to taste
1 teaspoon peanut butter, optional
several splashes mushroom soy sauce
black pepper, to taste
garlic powder, to taste

What you do: 

1. Place all ingredients in crockpot.
2. Cook at low setting (200 degrees F) for 10 hours, then add 1 cup water and turn heat to high setting.
3. Cook until peas begin to fall apart, but still have some texture.
Serve with coleslaw and crusty vegan bread. You can also reduce stock a little further, blenderize, and fry in oil as for refried beans, until beginning to go golden and crusty. This is nutty and incredibly good served with rice and spinach and some sort of hot or sour pickle.

Glad you liked it.  This is my recipe; the admin uploaded it for me at a time when I was having trouble with the site and/or my 'puter.  ADMIN:  I'd sure like to get my name back on this recipe, as it's one I'm proud of.  My old username, if memory serves, was Raincrone, or maybe eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%72%61%69%6e%63%72%6f%6e%65%40%6a%75%6e%6f%2e%63%6f%6d%22%3e%72%61%69%6e%63%72%6f%6e%65%40%6a%75%6e%6f%2e%63%6f%6d%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')), but now I have a new account..


i made this last night and it was everything i dreamed it could be.  i didn't use a green pepper, but did add one yellow onion.  my room mate said it was in his top 5 best meals.

i made it with some homemade onion flatbread (1 cup white flour, 1 cup wheat flour, 3/4 cup water, 1 tbsp olive oil... and one sauteed onion all mixed together, then cooked in a nonstick pan with a little olive oil spray)...  along with some spinach. 

WONDERFUL! thank you. definately going into the rotation.
