Ingredients

Instructions

  • Fill a saucepan with water, leaving room at the top. Bring it to a boil over high heat.
  • Sift through the dry lentils to ensure there are no hard pieces.
  • Once the water is boiling, add the rinsed lentils (Optional: Add salt, bay leaf and/or garlic).
  • Reduce heat, and cook for an appropriate amount of time for the type of lentils you are using. Red lentils ~6 minutes. Regular green lentils ~13 minutes. Black lentils ~16 minutes. French green lentils ~18 minutes
  • Once cooked, strain off the excess water. Pour the lentils back into your pot, removed from heat. Discard bay leaf if used. If you added a garlic clove, smash it against the side of the pot, and stir into lentils.
  • Stir in olive oil
