DIRECTIONS

  • Wash lentils thoroughly.
  • Put them in saucepan and cover with water, add butter or oil.
  • Cover and bring to a natural simmer over low heat.
  • *Note-this takes a little while but prevents lentils from breaking.
  • Once at a low boil, you may need to tilt the lid slightly to release steam and prevent overboil.
  • Add onions, peppers, and garlic and continue to simmer for about 45 mins or until lentils are soft.
  • Drain lentils in a strainer with a measuring cup beneath to catch the excess liquid.
  • Pour off all but 1 cup of the liquid (keeping the last cup gives the best texture) and return to the pan with boullion cubes, until dissolved.
  • Return lentils to pan and cook 15 mins more, adding salt& pepper.
