Ingredients[edit]

Procedure[edit]

  1. Pick over the lentils and remove any stones etc. Rinse well.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add the onion and carrots. Cook for a few minutes, until the vegetables have started to soften, then add the garlic.
  3. Add the lentils, bay leaf, and water to the pot. Simmer over low-medium heat for 20-30 minutes, until lentils are softened.

Serves 4.

Optional Additions[edit]

Herbs and/or spices can be added to the sautéing vegetables, such as cumin, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes.

Hot sauce can be added to taste. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is a nice addition, preferably immediately before serving.
