|Time required||1 hour|
|Ingredients||2 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
|Directions||Place 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.

|Notes||Serve 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.
