 RECIPE: Indian Lentil Sandwich Spread 
 This is the recipe as it appears in the _New McDougall Cookbook_. I've 
 made this one a few times, once left the lentils whole and used as 
 a filling for pita, and once mashed them up to use as a spread. Also have
 started with dry lentils and just thrown everything into the cooking water.
 The combination of spices could be changed to produce a different taste too.
 I just thought of barbeque sauce......anyway, here's the recipe.
 Indian Lentil Sandwich Spread
 1 Cup cook lentils
 4 Cloves of garlic, pressed
 2 teaspoons ground coriander
 1 teaspoon ground cumin
 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
 Combine all ingrediants in a small saucepan.  Cook gently over low heat,
 stirring occasionally, fir 5 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
 Chill for one hour.
