    Yellsbells's Note:

    This is one of my favourites from growing up in Trinidad. It's a great vegetarian dish and very healthy, as it has high levels of proteins, is a good source of iron, and also contains dietary fiber, folate, and vitamin B1. It also freezes very well if made in large batches. I usually serve mine with rice.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For bagged lentils, follow the preparation listed on the bag, soaking if necessary. If using dried lentils, make sure to sift through them removing any debris and then soak in a bowl with water for a few hours or overnight.
    2. 2
      When the lentils are prepped, add them to a pot with enough water to cover them by about 2 inches.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic cloves (whole), hot pepper (whole), salt, black pepper, thyme and bouillon to the lentils and water, and heat to medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Bring this to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to a simmer for about 45 minutes or until the lentils are tender.
    5. 5
      In another pot, heat the oil at medium heat and saute the sliced onions until they are golden at the edges.
    6. 6
      Then gently (we’re adding liquid to hot oil) add the cooked lentils to the pot (pour in everything).
    7. 7
      With a whisk or cooking spoon, stir to break down some of the lentils to thicken the consistency and create more of a sauce.
    8. 8
      Add the scallions, cilantro and butter and stir.
    9. 9
      Allow this to cook for about 20 more minutes or until the desired consistency is reached. I prefer mine to be like a thick soup.
    10. 10
      Don’t forget to fish out the twig from the thyme before serving and enjoy.

      This hearty lentil stew was savory and delicious. I am glad I doubled the recipe in order to stock my freezer. My family enjoyed this dish.
