       1 T  Vinegar
       2 T  Honey
       2 c  Tomatoes, chopped
       1 cn Tomato paste (6 oz)
       1 c  Vegetable stock
       1 c  Green peas, fresh or frozen
            Salt & pepper
   Start rice cooking.
   Note: Spices are on the mild side.
   Rinse & cook lentils and potatotes (approx. 25-30 min.) When done, drain &
   set aside.  Use plenty of water to cook lentils.
   While lentils are cooking, toast garlic. (Pile garlic in corner of a
   heavy, non-stick pan. Put a few drops of olive or other good-flavored oil
   over it. Toss garlic in the oil until coated. Saute, keeping careful
   watch, until the garlic is toasted. Gives a wonderful flavor and aroma to
   the food and your kitchen!).
   Add onions to the toasted garlic and saute in stock or water until they
   are just translucent.  Add chopped tomatoes.
   Make 1 cup of stock in a 2 cup measuring cup. Add tomato paste to the
   stock. Mix well. Add spices, tamari, vinegar, honey, etc. to that mixture
   and blend. Spice measurements are approximate and on the mild side. Add
   liquid to sauted onions. Add stock or water as needed & continue
   When lentil-potato mixture is cooked, drain and mix it into the saute.
 Add green peas & cook another 5 minutes.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
   Optional: Add chick peas, Bragg's liquid (in lieu of salt if needed).
