Savory Red Lentils
Made for dinner:
1 cup red lentils (picked through)
1 Tbsp. minced garlic (many many cloves)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dill
1/2 tsp. savory
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 cups water
Saute chopped onion and garlic in water (of course) for several
minutes. Rinse red lentils (mine always have bug carcasses in 'em, so
it's a good idea that you do so), and add with the rest of the
ingredients. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Uncover and cook for a few minutes more - 5 or so if you want to.
This last step is not mandatory, but I didn't use enough water (only 1
1/2 cups), so I added 1/2 cup more and let it mix for a couple of
Slop this up with some good fresh bread. I had some French Meadow
Summer Bread - basil flavor. I warmed a chunk up in the microwave.
