This curried red lentil dhal is excellent and especially when it's on a pile of Romaine lettuce, spinach, red cabbage, celery, parsnip, carrot, turnip, and bell pepper. The complex mixture of spices of the dhal is accented by the texture of sunchoke and squash and then finished with the crisp, freshness of raw vegetables.
