Make

  1. Heat a non-stick skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tbs. (30 ml) cooking oil and then garlic to heated oil. Once you can smell the garlic, add the onions with a dash of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
  2. Next add in lentils, broth (use 2 cups (472 ml) if you soaked overnight, 4 cups (940 ml) if you didn't), and bay leaf with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then simmer until lentils have absorbed all the stock and are almost cooked through, ~10 minutes (2 to 3x longer if you didn't soak them). If lentils have absorbed all the stock but are still far from being cooked and tender, just add a bit more stock or water.
  3. Next add in tomatoes, red peppers, and sugar with another dash of salt. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add in olives. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and sweetener. Enjoy with quinoa.
