Date: Wed, 21 Feb 1996 11:26:58 -0600 (CST) From: Jess Durrant <jdurrant@...> This is a *really* wonderful lentil recipe, but I'll warn you... THIS IS NOT FAT FREE OR LOW FAT. It contains a fair amount of butter. I'm going to work on a version that cuts out the butter, I'll post it when I get a good one!

Sautee the garlic in the butter until browned. While the garlic is sauteeing, mix the dry spices with 2 Tbsp water to make a paste. Add the paste to the browned garlic and stir for a couple minutes. Add the lentils (make sure to rinse them) and stir for a few minutes. Add 2½ cups water and simmer for an hour. Serves 4. It's great by itself or with rice!

Subject: Re: Great lentil recipe! I'm sure you were trying to be nice, but this really irked me. Please do post the yummy recipe when it is fat free or low fat -- but NOT now! It's easy to find tasty recipes that have a ton of butter. That's not why this list was created. This is not a generic vegetarian mailing list -- this list is called fatfree. It is for support for those people, and their families and friends, who are following a McDougall or Ornish-sytle vegetarian diet. It is no fun to see recipes that are purported to be wonderful that we can't eat!!!!!!!!! Frustrated, Cindy
