Leslie's Sloppy Lenties

Leslie's Version of Sloppy Lenties... serves a lot (freezes very well)
1.5 c. rinsed and drained red lentils
3c. water
2c. tomato sauce or fresh tomatoes or whatever you want
1 T. tamari (soy sauce)
3-4 carrots, chopped
1 bell pepper of choice
a few big handfuls of kale, chopped
about 1/2 or 1 whole onion, chopped
pinch of chili flakes
1t. dried basil
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
habenero pepper (if you feel like it)

Method: Combine dried lentils, water, tomato sauce, tamari and bring to a boil.

While waiting, chop (food processor is best to get real small) the veggies and mix together. Add to pot of lentils. Add chili flakes and basil and whatever else you feel like. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes to an hour. Stir every once in a while. Enjoy with a spoon or some bread (or anything else good you can think of, like a bread bowl, see below).
