Recipe Directions for Misir Wot (Ethiopian Lentil Stew) -D B+

For Misir Wot, cook 1 1/2 cups red lentils in 2 cups water for about a 1/2 hour. Then, saute a large finely chopped onion in a couple tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet until clear. Add a couple minced cloves of garlic, saute a little more, then put in 2 tbsp. berbere mix (see recipe for "Berbere") and a little water to keep it from sticking. Add the cooked lentils, and cook everything on low until the lentils completely disintigrate - about 1/2 hour again. If you prefer the dish to look red rather than yellowish, sprinkle in some sweet paprika at the end.
