Ingredients2 cups dried lentils
5 cups water
2 bay leaves
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp each: black pepper, oregano, dill, basil
pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp light vegetable oil
1 chopped onion
1 chopped bell pepper
4 cloves chopped garlic
1/4 cup butter or margarine
DirectionsPlace lentils, water, and bay leaves in a large pot. Boil, reduce heat, simmer partially covered for approximately 30 minutes.

Measure and combine spices in a bowl.

Heat oil in a frying pan. Saute bell pepper, onion, and garlic for 3 minutes, then add the spices and salt and saute for 2 minutes more. Set aside.

Remove bay leaves from lentils and mash until smooth. Mash veggie-spice mixture into the lentils. Mash in the butter. Continue to cook over very low heat for about 30 minutes to blend the flavours. Stir often, adding water as necessary.
NotesServe with pita or crackers.

Recipe was originally published as Lentil "Refried Beans", but it only has the consistency of beans if you really mash it a lot. You don't need to mash it at all, and you'll get lentil stew.
