Red lentils are quick to prepare and delicious to eat! After sautéing onions, garlic, and ginger you add spices and stock. Then you add the picked over and rinsed lentils. Bring the pot to a boil and in 15 minutes your dish is cooked. All that is left to do is to add lemon juice, correct the seasoning if needed, and serve with a dollop of yogurt. (Omit dairy yogurt for a vegan version.) We made some rice and a salad to go along but having pita with the lentils is good too and even less work!
