Directions

  1. Rinse lentils and place them in a saucepan.
  2. Add 5 cups of water and simmer over low heat for at least 30 minutes.
  3. When they start boiling remove froth using a wooden spoon.
  4. Check that the lentils are soft enough before removing them from heat. Otherwise simmer them more and stir them in order to thicken.
  5. When they are soft enough, remove from heat, stir with a wooden spoon or beat them with a mixer in order to become creamy.
  6. Add olive oil, lemon juice of one lemon and stir or beat with a mixer again.
  7. Serve in a bowl hot or cold and garnish with chopped onion.

Tip: To soften them easier you may soak them for hours in water with soda powder. Soda will accelerate the cooking process but it will produce more froth.
