Many times when I am preparing meatless meals, my head immediately thinks about Indian food and all the delicious vegetarian dishes that abound in their cooking.  This particular recipe took its inspiration from Indian cooking and truthfully was a bit of a mash up of ingredients I had in the house.  I love the combination of coconut milk and curry powder and the sweet potatoes and lentils rounded everything out nicely with some spinach for greens.  Kale would be delicious as well.
