Top-ranked recipe named "Lentils, Carrots and Potatoes"
1. In a deep pot, sauté the garlic and onion in oil until it starts to color.
2. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
3. Reduce to a simmer and cook until lentils are done, about 30 minutes.
4. Try serving with a garnish. I've done Gardein chick'n filets and pan seared peaches and thoroughly enjoyed both.
Add enough chili powder to make mildly spicy. I prefer less water such that the lentils are pasty rather than soupy.
