Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Stew

1 1/2 cups lentils
6 c water
796 ml diced tomatoes
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano

Recipe Directions for Lentil Stew

  1. Get out a large stew pot.

  2. Put the lentils in it, and add the water. You can wash the lentils first in a colander if you like, they do sometimes have a little dirt in them, so rinsing them is a good idea.

  3. Then put the clean lentils in your big pot (4-quart size) and add the tap water.

  4. Bring the lentils to a boil and simmer them on the back of the stove for about an hour. They should be nice and soft, if they aren't then cook them a little longer, until they taste soft enough to you.

  5. Now get out a frying pan. Heat the non-stick cooking spray over medium high heat.

  6. Add the onion and garlic. Quickly saute the onions and garlic until they become tender and translucent.

  7. Then add the tomatoes and basil.

  8. Bring to a slow boil, and simmer for a few minutes. When the tomatoes and onions are hot, add them to the pot of lentils.

  9. Stir it up and serve.
