Lentils ole

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups Water
1 cup Lentils
1 tablespoon Olive oil
4 \N Cloves garlic -- minced
½ cup Scallion -- chopped
½ cup Green pepper -- chopped
⅜ teaspoon Ground cumin
1 tablespoon Chili powder
8 ounces Tomato sauce
1 tablespoon Red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Molasses

In a large saucepan, bring the water and the lentils to a boil.

Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and simmer the lentils for 25-30 minutes or until the lentils are tender but not mushy. Do not overcook the lentils.

While the lentils cook, in a medium-sized skillet, preferably one with a nonstick surface, heat the oil, add the garlic, scallions, green pepper, cumin, and chili powder, and saute the ingredients for 2 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Stir in the tomato sauce, vinegar, and molasses, and simmer the mixture for 1 minute.

When the lentils are cooked, add the vegetable mixture to the lentils, and heat the mixture through before serving it.
