The original version of this recipe can be found in "McDougall's New
Cookbook." Modified by yours truly.
3 cups water
1 cup lentils
1 onion, chopped (recipe called for "small" onion, I used a large one)
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tsp garlic (I used fresh oil-free garlic from a jar)
1 tsp red pepper
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
1/2 cup salsa
Chopped fresh tomatoes
Put water and beans in saucepan on med high heat. Add all ingredients
except salsa and tortillas. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionlly. Reduce
heat and let cook til lentils are soft, about 45 minutes. (Keep stirring
because the beans will stick to the bottom of the pot.) Once the beans are
mushy, add salsa, stir well.
Place in tortillas, garnish as desired, and enjoy.
NOTE: I didn't soak the beans beforehand and haven't experienced any
problems. Mary McD says, in this book, that you don't need to soak
lentils. I can look this up if anyone wants to hear her reasoning.
