On the stovetop bring to boil 5 cups of water in a saucepot with cover. Check lentils for, and discard any, extraneous matter (small stones, etc.). Rinse lentils and add to boiling water. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook lentils until soft (the water should all be absorbed).

While the lentils are cooking, peel, wash, and dice onion. Wash, remove seeds and stem from red pepper, and dice.

Place diced onion and red pepper in large microwaveable covered casserole dish, add a little hot sauce or cayenne pepper to taste, mix, cover, and cook in microwave oven on high setting until onions just begin to get translucent.

Wash, remove stem, and peel the butternut squash with a sturdy vegetable peeler. Split the butternut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. (You may want to save the seeds for roasting later.) Cut each squash half into � inch slices and then cut each slice into � inch cubes. Add squash pieces to onion-pepper mixture in casserole dish.  Add the raisins, walnuts, curry powder and cinnamon, mix, cover, and cook in microwave oven on high setting, mixing every five minutes, until the squash begins to get tender.

Add the cooked lentils to the squash mixture, mix, and cook for another ten minutes, mixing after five minutes. If it seems too dry, add a little water or apple juice.

Serve with a tossed salad and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
