This recipe is from Cooking Light and is very good. I know, that is like the boringest intro ever. I’m tired. Here’s a joke. Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9!
Place sweet potato, 3 cups water, and next 7 ingredients (through tumeric) in a 5-6 quart electric slower cooker coated with cooking spray. Add 1 teaspoon sugar, salt, garlic, and tomato paste; stir well to combine. Cover and cook on low 8 hours. Turn off heat; stir in coconut milk. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes.
(continued on next page) Combine remaining 1/2 cup water, remaining 2 teaspoons sugar, and vinegar in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave at high 2 minutes or until boiling.
Add onion to vinegar mixture; let stand 20 minutes at room temperature. Drain.
Place 1/2 cup rice in each of 8 shallow bowls. Top each serving with 1 1/4 cups lentil mixture, 2 tablespoons red
onion mixture, and 2 tablespoons cilantro.
