Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups chana dal -- cleaned thoroughly
1 large onion
4 cloves garlic -- chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves torn into small pieces
1 medium carrot
1 stalk celery
1 small orange sweet potato or yam
1 cherry pepper -- seeded and sliced
1 long hot pepper -- seeded and sliced
8 cups water or vegetable stock
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 bay leaves

Cut onion into quarters lengthwise, and then slice. Slice carrot into 1/2 inch
long pieces, cut peeled sweet potato into chunks, and slice the celery. Heat
the olive oil in your soup pot and saute the onions until they are golden. Add
all of the other ingredients except the dal and water and continue to stir unt
il they start to soften and look cooked.

The cherry peppers are small (maybe golf-ball size) round red peppers. They ar
e relatively mild -- jalapenos are a little hotter. Any red pepper can be subs
tituted. The bright red color of the cherry peppers looks pretty in the soup.

Add the chana dal and water/stock, bring to a boil, and then simmer for about 1
to 1 1/2 hours. Serve with whole grain bread and a green salad.

This is a very mild concoction. Feel free to add more or hotter peppers to tas
te, and salt, if you use it.
