Ethiopian Red Lentils
Why I Love This Recipe
My cooking club meets every month and we recently had an Ethiopian Pot Luck.
Ingredients You'll Need
2 1/2 onions chopped small
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 T fresh minced ginger
1 tomato, chopped
2 C red lentils, washed well
3-4 C water
1 t salt (more or less)
Saute the onions well without oil.
Add garlic and ginger when the
onions are very soft and saute a few minutes.
Add the tomato and saute a couple minutes more.
Add berbere and saute for a minute or two.
Last, add the lentils and 3 C water.
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the lentils are soft.
Add more water as the lentils
cook if needed.
Add salt and it's ready to serve.
