Recipe Ingredients for Lentils with Spinach and Garlic

1 cup lentils
1 bunch spinach, washed and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons olive oil

Recipe Directions for Lentils with Spinach and Garlic

Wash lentils thoroughly in colander. There are many varieties available these days, French green, red, brown, all are good. Turn them into 3 quart pot and cover with water, about 5 cups. Add the salt and bring to a boil, simmer uncovered only 15 minutes or to taste. Do not overcook! Lentils have a wonderful flavor but they are mushy and bland if they are cooked too long. Drain the lentils. Add the rest of the ingredients, sprinkling the parmesan on top and keep covered for 10 minutes until the spinach and garlic are soft and all the flavors have had a chance to mix. Makes about 4 cups of lentils.
