DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the onions in hot oil until they are soft, then add the ginger and garlic and keep cooking for one or two minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, thyme and bay leaves and continue to cook, stirring, until the tomatoes are soft.
  • Add the lentils and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover.
  • Simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, topping up with water as necessary. The finished lentils should be more of a thick stew than a soup.
  • Add salt to taste.
