You are going to need:
1 lb bag of lentils
enough water for the lentils + a cup or two
1 lb of carrots
bunch of kale
ground lamb (I used a pound, use more if you want to fuck it up with lamb, or w/e)
Chicken bouillon ~3 or 4 tablespoons
Cook up the lamb in a large soup pot. Then make the lentils as directed in the same pot with all the tasty lamb fat and shit.
Take the veggies and garlic, and throw that shit in a food processor yao, you are going to make a veggie smoothie out of that shit, you'll see. Liquefy it, or as best you can, the olive oil is to give the food processor something to work with while you are grinding that shit down. Peel a lemon and toss it in (try and de-seed it those are a mutha to bite into) process that lemon. This is going to be the stock for the soup, son, Kale is all good for you and shit (http://bitly.com/7RkKif if you want some reference), and you can never eat enough carrots, also a good way to trick people into eating super fuckin healthy. You can actually put what ever veggies in this, I just picked some baller ass superfoods that taste fuckin awesome. I made a standard kitchen-aide sized batch of this, not sure how much of what goes in there, I used about half the kale and how ever much carrots, see rule #1.
Now dump that superfood smoothie into the lentils that are a bubblin. Now your soup is going to look like some nasty toxic shit, thats just the Kale bits separating from the soup. The lentils will start soaking up water and some of the green shit, also that curry powder has a yellow hue to it so it'll make it look less scary. Make sure to keep enough water in that bitch otherwise yo shit gonna burn.
I also added a can of chickpeas and sweet corn, for extra depth n shit. And some more lemon juice, once again, invoking rule #1.
All in all this made a huge fuckin pot of fine ass grub, like almost filled my 6 quart pot. If you have curry powder already this will cost ~$15 ($8 is coming from the ground lamb). So if you are super fuckin broke, stop giving blowjobs at truck stops to afford McDonalds, rather whip this bitch up and hopefully your dick intake will go down. Unless you like it, then suck on my friend, but at least you have more cash in your pocket. Per serving costs like 25 cents, add another bag of lentils for even more cost savings.

Since my last post. So on my almost anniversary of silence I guess I'll update. I am now the proud owner of two very nice folded carbon steel knives. My wife looked at one of them the wrong way and it cut her finger from across the room. Ok, thats a lie, but they are that sharp. Which leads me to my point on knife safety more people get hurt from dull knives then from sharp ones, honestly. I used to work at a wine bar and we were constantly slicing and chopping and 9 times out of 10 the injuries were due to the knife not being sharp enough and taking the tip off someones finger and right into a salad (happened only once, and we may or may not have noticed that the tip of the finger was in the salad after we served it). The other 10% comes from not paying attention. So when handling knives, sharpen them and pay attention, otherwise you'll have to comp someones meal and give them free dessert...
I digress, I received a Shun knife for Christmas and it is as beautiful as it is sharp. It is a 6 inch damascus patterned chef's knife and if you have the money i definately recommend this beautiful knife.

- White wine, left overs from a fiancee will do in a pinch
- butter, i think i used a quarter a stick
- chicken broth
- half a lemon
From my limited experience with leeks I learned a valuable lession, they are a bitch to clean. So what i did, and would love to discover a better method, is to cut the leeks in to little disks. Threw the disks in a collander and run under cold water. Then I laboriously rifled through the little bastards making sure all the mud and god knows what else is in farm soil was washed off, or at least to the point where I could in good conscious serve the food, shhhhh. So with my leeks and potentially goat placenta I threw it into a skillet the white wine, the butter and the other half of the lemon from the previous entry, set the burner to medium high. If I had more white wine, ahem Eva!, I would have cooked the leeks longer and on a higher temperature. But since she did buy the wine, I couldnt argue. Cook a cup of rice with chicken broth. Serve the orgasmic rings of green deliciousness on top a bed of rice and pour the white wine sauce on top. Presto changeo delicious.
