    1. 1
      First off you need to boil the lentils, just follow the directions on the back of the bag.
    2. 2
      While they are boiling bring a saute pan to medium heat with the 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
    3. 3
      Throw all the ingredients (not the lentils though) into the sauce pan and let them saute a bit.
    4. 4
      After about 3 minutes add the water to the sauce pan and cover it.
    5. 5
      Let the veggies saute for another 5 minutes on LOW heat.
    6. 6
      Once the lentils are at your desired softness, strain them, and add the contents of the pan.
    7. 7
      Add Salt and Pepper to make it just right for you. Personally I prefer nothing but the ingredients I put in, but each person is different and I recommend letting guests season it to their individual liking.

      So I am finally getting around to rating your recipes, and this one tops the charts. Amazing! I like to add a little cilantro to it (like 1/2 teaspoon) and a little less garlic (2 cloves) but basically this idea is genius!! Im just not huge on garlic.

      I have never cooked with lentils before, but this recipe is still very bland. The red pepper mixture smelled heavenly while cooking though. I reccomend about half the amount of lentils. Also some herbs and spices might add some flavor.

      I never know what to do with lentils. They are so good for you, but taste a little, um, plain. This is a good idea for any sauted veggies- I didn't have red bell pepper, but I used serrano peppers (very spicy, but so good!) Probably best to add scallions and parsley until the very end though.
