This is a great recipe to make in the winter - it is a hearty lentil stew, takes about an hour to make (no matter how much you increase the portions), and goes with most other foods. Also, it is really really easy to make, and can usually be made with things that you have in the house already. Can be served cold or hot, but it is much better hot than cold. This recipe comes from the Middle East.
- 4 onions, chopped
- 8 tablespoons olive oil
- 14 cups water
- 1 lb red lentil
- 5 tablespoons soup mix
- 2 teaspoons cumin
- 2 teaspoons coriander
- 2 lemons, juiced
- Saute the onions in a large pot with the olive oil until the onions are golden.
- Add the water, the lentils, the (optional) soup mix, the Cumin, the Coriander, and the juice from the lemons.
- Cook on medium heat for 1 (one) hour or until the lentils are done, stirring every few minutes.
- Take the pot off the heat, give it a stir, and serve!
