Chop em’ up. Just chop EVERYTHING up. Everything orange-colored. Doesn’t matter what it is!
Is it edible?… Taste it! does it taste good? are you still alive? Yes! good, good, very good, so go ahead chop it.


Throw it in!
Cook it!
Taste it!
Tastes good? no?!

Spice it up! we need more Flavor, Everything ORANGE! 
Throw it, sprinkle it, spray it whatever…
In with it!

Taste it, again yes!
Good right? GOOOOD!
so Goood…
Serve it! Eat it! Enjoy it!…….


Puuuh! What an intense and complex Recipe !… NO 😀
But seriously, there’s nothing more to this dish than that.
Just chop everything orange colored up and throw it with a bunch of other things in a pot. Let it Boil, then simmer and then cool down to enjoy on a cold and rainy autumn day.

Not much of a magical Trick.
Just an easy Recipe for those Lazy november Days 🙂

  1. What was that?
    CHOP IT! – YES, you guessed it!! Congratulation.
    Cut all the ingredients into little chunks.
  2. Heat up a big Pot and put everything into it (No Oil needed!)
    Let it dry-fry for aprox. 2-4 minutes. Stir it frequently and do not let anything get dark brown…
  3. Deglaze everything with some Water. Make sure all the ingredients (Lentils included) are covered with liquid
    (For extra creaminess and richness add coconut milk/ream or half plant based milk half water.)
  4. Spice it up! Use your favorite Seasonings including Turmeric, paprika, curry and anything orange colored or indian flavored. Remember ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK!!
  5. Let it simmer with the lit on for 20-40 minutes until the sweet potato is soft and mushy and the lentils are all macerated. With a potato masher or a fork mash everything up. Do NOT! blend it in a mixer as you will end up with soup. A very delicious one tho.. Yet we do want those chunks in there.
  6. Taste it and make adjustments.
  7. Serve & finish it off with fresh parsley and other herbs of your preference.


Lots of Love and Flavor the Blueeyedkitchencat
