* You might want to make first only half of this recipe. The whole recipe makes a large amount.
* 1/2 a cup serving is very filling. Delicious.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 cups brown lentils

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Rinse the lentils in a slieve. Tip into a saucepan and add 4 cups cold water.Bring to a boil, skim the surface if necessary, then cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minuets.

Meanwhile, have the tomatoes peeled and chopped fine. Set the tomatoes aside.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onion, and cook over a low heat until softened.
